    Siu - with 125 posts, he's not exactly a noob. Aside from that, there's an entire forum here - including a very popular thread specifically about Kilo TTs.

    I'm really not trying to be a dick here, it's just common sense.

    O Scrod,
    I will soon be getting a set of Campa Record Pista hubs in the mail, and a set of Mavic MA-40s I intend to lace them to. I don't want to do radial but is 1x a viable option for front lacing? (36 hole f/r) If not, I plan to do 2x front and 3x DS 2x NDS rear, unless you think there are better options.
    I plan to source spokes from you. I assume there would be no complications using CX-rays with Record hubs?
    Last question, the hub I bought is shipping with an original cog and lockring. I want to shelve these. What current production cogs and lockrings are compatible with Campa threads (If you know)?
    Thank you for your help.

    I know this is a rather bit silly but I didn't see it to be new thread worthy.

    Scrod, got any tips or tricks for getting into straps with bulky work shoes? I can thread the needle just fine with my Converses on but when it comes time to do it with my work shoes it is a nightmare. I've tried dialing in my strap length and shape by marking the strap positions with small velcro pieces on the inside, and its still considerably difficult.

    I've never ridden with big, bulky shoes so hopefully someone who has can chime in here.

    I'll ride with skate shoes occasionally, which have more padding on the uppers than your typical chucks/vans. If you've got metal clips, you can stretch the mouth open wider. Put your foot in the clip and then tighten the strap appropriately. You should have enough room to get in and out, and the clip will provide enough spring to hold open against the strap.

    They also make them deep clips to accommodate bulkier shoes, but I'm sure you've considered that already.

    I always look for narrow profile shoes, not paper thin uppers, but on the slim side.

    This +1

    It also helps to size up your clips. I went to a XL cage during the period I had a pair of half cabs to destroy. Now I'm down to a medium size clip wearing hipster shoes which happen to go great w/ my narrow feet.

    I was under the impression CX-rays were kind of oval-shaped and not fully bladed (to fit through flange holes w/out filing), and the aero profile was really only noticeable when you looked closely at them. Am I incorrect?

    Check out the pedal room link in my sig, look at my kilo.
    They're noticeable.


    His point though, was that they're out of place with the combo you mentioned.

    This is something people do with dished multi-speed wheels. It serves no purpose on dishless SS wheel

    I only wear docs or full-size skate shoes to ride with BMX straps. My Globes would never fit in a cage. That's my experience

    Thanks, for the help guys. I think I should of specified I have a pair of Scrod's v2 straps, however the talk about clips has given me an idea. Going to see if I can create a arched spine down the middle of the strap to hold a better shape so I can get my shoe in easier. If I actually get it to work, it'll be hidden by the top cover strap and no one would know it was there.

    This.

    MA-40s are great, durable rims, but they are a an old school box rim and that doesn't jibe with the look of a bladed spoke to my eye. Personally, I'd just use Sapim Race spokes with that hub/rim combo for aesthetic reasons, but that's just my preference. If they're 32h I'd lace them 3x. It'll be a good looking wheelset that'll look good with vintage or modern frames.

    They're just removable inserts that keep a wheel positioned properly on a geared bike. If you're riding a single speed or fixed gear conversion, you do not want them.
