Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Yep. I placed the order on 8/2, the first day they were available. Two days later I was riding it.

it was a first gen ti shell rear from 1992 that they no longer make spare parts for. plus it can only accept a 7spd freehub and i wanted to run 10.
im sure your wheels are fine because you have new stuff and not this elderly junk like i did.

Cinelli Hobootleg

I love my Cinelli Hobootleg. Mostly used for touring and commuting. Looking a bit different these days with a rando bag living up front as well as a Giles Berthoud saddle instead of the Brooks C17. I'm about to ditch those Compass tires though. They feel amazing. They look amazing. They flat constantly.

I'm also having a new fork built. The original was ruined when I got hit by a truck, and the carbon/aluminum Columbus Tusk Touring fork I've been riding just doesn't have enough rake. Makes me nervous. Used to run fenders, but got one too many rocks stuck up in there.

Those are Speed Racer hubs. I had them on my old Serotta in the late 90's with an DA 9 speed group. Sweetest hubs I ever had. I do not believe they were ever made for 7 speed. They came out in '94 when 7 speed was obsolete. In 2014 they released a 20th anniversary edition updated for 11 speed.

i thought it was an mi5. i cut it out of an old wheel i found at the shop stashed in the corner collecting dust. it was shiny and 135 spaced just like the stinner so i thought it would be perfect. i emailed white some pictures and asking about 11spd freehub compatibility between generations and it was possible to upgrade. they hit me back with this.

so i guess i could have a nice singlespeed rear wheel with some spacers and a king cog.
but even with replacing the bearings, theres still some side to side play in the hub that i cant adjust out.
