Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I asked RedMenace Thursday night if those hubs were Campy Sheriff stars, since I had heard those were prone to exploding. Weird...

you did! and i replied with some ridiculous response like "no, they have one too many points..."

boy did i think i was clever at the time! funny thing about that, i can't say for sure but i think i splintered it right after the start of the race on the first lap. MrWhite launched an attack and i responded to it... i remember hearing (and feeling) a loud pop, but all i was thinking about was getting his wheel. i didn't think about it again until the next day at work when i noticed the hub had exploded and the rim was wonky. i blame you...

I'm only going to ride my Campy sherrif stars on the track as per Campagnolo's request. The new DA high flange built to non-machined deep Vs will be for street riding whenever they ship in December.
