    Wanted - Rear Wheel - QR 29" or 700c - 135mm

    I have zero experience with jumping from 10 to 11 speed and what the hub requirements are. I will give you a rear wheel. I think its a Shimano hub with salsa rim and it has a 10 speed cassette on it. As a matter of fact, if you take it, you have to take the front as well. The furthest north I...

    Carbon wheels!

    You are quoting Dan and comparing him to Pink Bike testers, hmm. That said, I'm all in on the aluminum rims for price and reliability. Dan- mad love my man!;)

    Carbon wheels!

    Saw some pics of The Daily Randonneur on IG. Him and his wife did it in 81 hours and looks like they could roll the course again. Based off of his response to my comment, it looks like their strategy was go fast and hard to assure a complete night sleep. No naps

    Old Iron

    Predating 1985. Hence no loop back or pro class wheels. Pro class wheels that came standard were well sought after by guys racing Elf’s, CW, Hutch, etc. Next level bikes. Should be super solid when you’re done.
