So a couple weeks ago I sold my car becaue I moved to a place closer to my school and job. Its been great riding everywhere, and the only problem is the groceery store, I can only carry so much. I love it though. Anyone else recently ditch the car?
Also, today I stopped by the local bicycle recycler and bought an aerospoke and 650c fork. I was a bit weary about going 650c in the front...but it was such a good deal I thought i'd give it a try. The wheel is tubular and came with a couple extra tires. To my surprise the tire on it holds air. It runs straight and smooth and only cost me $45. ANd got a neat aluminium 650c fork for $12. I keep wondering if there is some catastrohpic problem with the wheel, but there are no cracks that I can see; just normal abraisons from use.
I just finished installing it all, I had to switch back to a threaded headset and I had never done my own work on a headset before so I hope its safe. a question, how many psi should I inflate a tubular to? I can't find any info on the wheel, so i just filled it until it seemed about the same as my normal clinchers.
