That actually came to mind since I recently got another pair of record hubs to replace the ones I sold to you.

I'm really liking those rims. They may be a candidate for my wife's trek 660

Forgive me for the non-bicycle post...C&V still are these red mid 90s Chicago Bulls shorts. Adding to the white pair collection.

I received this jersey. For inspiration I put it in a frame as it is too small for me. My goal is to get down to where I can wear it.

Nothing tangible came in the post today but....
I bought a pair of Chorus 2nd gen Ergo's on the Bay. Turns out the G spring retainer on the right was broken in two spots and the left had nearly collapse springs along with significant damage to the body. I decided the seller should know and sent him a note. He was surprised and offered a refund. I made a suggestion to cover the worn out parts and he accepted. 35% refund. I was surprised at the response and grateful!
The parts cost to me was reduced about the same amount. There is a chance to recover costs now, should I decide to sell them.

Received a pair of Sturmey Archer hubs, one of which is getting built into a new wheel for the Gazelle Tandem I bought last week. 650B wheels here I come.

The X-FDD dynohub front is going in the stockpile and will probably be built into a new wheel together with the 70mm variant of the 5-speed hub I have lying around.

Soma 650B rims to build with a 10s Campy rear and a SRAM dyno hub.
Some very well used green Modolo International's to go with my very faded levers I've had for 35 years. I'll take Modolos any day of the week. I wish they made long reach...

I was recently clearing out a rental unit and found a lovely 1/4" drive SnapOn ratchet wrench much like your micro driver. Already one of my favorite tools. Congrats.

Long have I watched. Waited. Cursed the other Reynolds that mocked my every search.
Even started a thread once, just for confirmation of their existence, so I could know my very occasional, casual efforts weren't in vain.
Watched.
Waited.

See #6336 . Old and new. Old is around 2005. Looks like the second gen bodies are all the same despite the changes in the silk screening.
