This is getting silly.

The new road racing bike just gets lighter and lighter. Notice how the carbon on the cranks matches the carbon on the frame?IMGP0382.JPG

I hate how this new program does not automatically “wrap” text around images. Sorry, I’m working on it.IMGP0390.JPG

Recovering from the break in at the shop is going well. It is a bummer that I have to put security bars up in the window. Oh well. It is getting so crazy busy again. Ira has been working out really, really well. There are a handfull of his frames hanging up in the shop.IMGP0384.JPG

Been sticking to the trainning plan and just took a look at my schedule for the year. There is a lot of racing to do this year and a lot of overlapping XC and road races. If I ever get a XC bike together I’ll default to XC races.IMGP0388.JPG

Take a look at these hubs that this guy from Ireland brought in. He told me that his friend from the Czech republic is making these hubs. They are pretty nice. Fancy wide alloy threads, alloy lockrings. Well machined axles. I asked him to get me in touch with his friend. I’ll be building them up in a couple days.

  1. Take it with a grain of salt but I’d suggest passing on the front hub. The front hub utilizes a small cartridge bearing, which – skipping the boring tech details – results in low durability. Sorry, but it’s true.

  2. Yeah. But they look nice. Can’t stop the kids from going for the bling. Kinda like those Am Classic hubs. Absolutely zero durability but they are so light people keep popping bearings in and out every few races.

  3. Ditto for the all those eggbeater pedals. Small bearings.

  4. Hey, keeps you closer to the spindle. I just pulled the bearings out and jam around on the TI spindles. Shave weight where you can…
