Eddie may have had some influence as this was in Franfurt. I purchased a sew up set of wheels with the bike. Clinchers to ride to work, sew up's for weekend rides. Now I am rambling!

Your attention to detail sets the standard as does your personality that comes through your posts!
Such nice words, Patrick - thank you. And you know that goes right back at you
