I had a Shutter Precision hub on my commuting bike for two or three years. I probably put more than 10,000 miles on that hub, and a lot of those miles were in the rain. It worked flawlessly until the...

I guess my Covid project fits pretty well in this thread. I just finished putting this together a couple of weeks ago. It's a 1982 Trek 710 to which I added cantilever posts, a few other braze-on...
