You guys don't miss anything!

Yeah, not cleanest glue job. Probably a combination of factors: My second glue job, and the fact that the sprinters fit really tightly on those rims. I did flat the rear after my first glue job and it took me about half an hour to get it off so I think I did something right.



The rims are clean, it is just the sidewalls. I wasn't as careful the second time and worked a little quicker with the last coat hoping the Mastik One would be a little wetter than the first time. Instead I got a few thicker spots the burbled out and also smeared some glue on the sidewalls wrestling the tire on.

I don't glue my own tubies. I don't have the patience or intelligence to glue my tubies.

lol true. The "college students don't have money" is quite a lie now a days as I know quite a few with brand new cars, boats, etc....is relatively speaking. $2,000 is a lot less.
Though I am graduating soon and already have a full time job lined up. Panning to buy a Rossetti Murcielago and make it a weight weenie bike.

Just picked this up:



Now all I need to do is get fit, install the Quarq, and swap out the handlebars, stem, cassette, and tires.

Aluminum on aluminum. But for me, this bike is the business.

No wonder really. I can't imagine how you'd get enough leverage on the hoods out of the saddle but to each his own.
