    Planet Bike Little Buddy. It includes tire levers with glueless patches and you can attach a clip-on light.

    I have QRified the Rush

    Normally I wouldn't show an NDS photo of my bike, but in this case it's needed to properly show the changes I've made. I just received a new Wabi wheelset, and the neat thing with the new design is that they use road hubs front and rear, such that you can either bolt them on using the supplied bolts or you can use quick release skewers. The only caveat is that you need to use an old school internal cam QR in the rear to get sufficient clamping force to keep the wheel from slipping in the track dropouts. I used an old Dura Ace QR meant for road bikes with 126mm rear OLD that is the perfect length for the very thick Rush dropouts and provides plenty of clamping force. I used an even older Campy Nuovo Tipo QR from the 1970s in the front, although any QR would have been fine since very little clamping force is required. The advantage of QRs is that you don't need to carry a 15mm wrench to remove the wheels in the event of a flat tire.

    ^^^ Do those wheels have shorter axles so the QR works? If so, what kind of nuts come with them? Did you ever have Wabi's old wheelset, and if you did, how do you like their new rims compared to the Jalcos?

    The axles are normal hollow road style, which do not extend beyond the dropouts. They are internally threaded at the ends so that they can also be used with bolts, which are supplied with them. I have the old style Wabi wheels, 650C that came with my Wabi Lightning and a 700C front that I previously had on the Rush. I like the new rims better, because they have a nice gloss black finish instead of the dull matte finish of the Jalcos and are squared off at the tips, so you don't see a gap where the valve stem sticks out. Quality wise, the new and old rims appear to be the same.

    Yeah, that's the reason for all my questions. I have been riding on a borrowed old Wabi wheelset that I like alot but my buddy wants them back & I have to order something soon, hate to miss the lower price.

    I'm thinking about building a Rum Runner but torn on sizing between 53 and 55. Any of you that own one have any input?

    I'm 5'10", cycling inseem is 32.5, and I have a bike with a 543mm effective top tube that fits great. Looking at the geo chart it seems like the 55 would be too big but the 53 might be just a little too small for me.

    I always go by top tube, and it's only 3mm less on the 53cm Rum Runner, so that seems the logical choice.

    I love that chrome grey color and the way it has a sort of green tint under some light.

    The budget back up bike is complete. Will get the first ride in on it today and get everything set up comfy like. Probably gonna go with drops on it instead of the risers.
