Starting to think about a new frame to replace the 930. Suggestions? Kind of looking at a Pake Rum Runner.
Scrod, I have a Surly Ultra New Hub with Velocity Synergy rim. When I tighten the axle bolts (or put in a skewer) the hub goes from silky smooth to binding.
This is my first sealed bearing hub. Shouldn't the compression forces that clamp the hub axle in place be isolated from the sealed bearing as they essentially are in a cone and cup bearing?
How can I fix this?
Scrod, is a good headset supposed to move with less resistance and faster? My roadbike has an FSA headset and I can't even ride without arms because it becomes really twitchy, even with a 110mm stem. My stock headset on my fixed on the other hand, doesn't have this "problem."
that is gorgeous.
Ride everything. Shave nothing.
Scrod the master wheelbuilder,
I think I've finally been talked out of my deep carbon wheel fetish.
I want to have a wheelset built that is stiff and light (~1700g?) and under $450 when it's all said and done.
I figure Novatec hubs is a good place to start but I have no idea where to look for rims. There seems to be a million options in the 400 +/- 20g range. I like the idea of a low spoke count but I'm not sure how realistic that is considering I want it to be stiff and under $450. I've yet to find a low spoke count track hub that isn't ~$100.
Edit: While I was typing this, you answered me in another thread: A23 or Aerohead.
I read the descriptions for both on the rg website. If I plan on using 23c tires, would you recommend the A23s or Aeroheads? I tried searching on the topic but didn't find much.
Check out IRD cadence rims. 60 grams lighter per rim than a23's.
I've had really good luck building them.
