Thank you for the kind words of encouragement. I'm really looking forward to finishing it.Green Dragon said:Loving it so far.
This has got to be my favorite build this year.
Been collecting parts for a lightweight / path racer / guvnor type build, but this makes fo reven more thought-fodder.
keep up the great work . a true winner.

Thank you, can't wait to see it all come together! I don't know where the rock was but I've been here :wink:SCHWINNRAY69 said:How did I miss this whole build??? :shock:
Nice work so far, has a real classic, clean look to it :wink:

Ha! That song would play 10 times a day at a job I used to haveJake Sensi said:AND SHE WAS SO NICE!! MAN SHE WAS LOVEY DOVEY!! PEACE
Thank you! Not yet, should I do the Klunker pic with it? :lol:rat-a-tac said:amazing looking build. have you taken it off any sweet jumps yet?
Thank you! Yes, these are clinchers, the biggest difference is they limit the tire psi to <65, due to the strength of the wall (there's carbon reinforced rims that can take much more pressure). There's also no lip on the inside wall so you have to use a steel bead tire. The rims are 700x30c the tires are 700x38c Specialized Hemispheres. They should flex, they're made to, and you should only have 50-60kgf of spoke tension to allow them to. Here's a pretty good write up about riding on them: http://www.roadbikeaction.com/Features/ ... heels.html I was just thinking this morning that they would be fun to lace up a set for my 29er but I don't know how they would handle big hits.carrotsnax said:looks good dude, are those rims "clincher" style? What size are they and what size are the tires? A carbide lamp would be cool. I look forward to you riding it, I have questions for you when you do. I am curious how much they will flex, I hear riding on new wood rims are similar to having a sprung frame.
Whats left? Nuts for front axle and?? your butt on the seat? :lol:
