My buddy decided on the "quiet" Project 321 hubs over the Onyx. Three rides in and the rear already blew up. Yeah, contamination, manufacturing flaw, etc...it still blew up after 30 miles. They are making good on it so we shall see.
On my ride today I went rogue on a deer trail a stick got stuck in my chain rings while gettingit out I saw my BB was shot finished my ride came home and replaced it with a xtr BB I had laying around no shame I used a pipe wtench to get the toasted one off
Finally gave this beast a bath. I'm seriously considering racing this bike at a few less technical courses. With my race wheels/tires this is sub 20lbs, with a heavy ass 46t cassette. I'm sure I could drop another lb with a 32t cassette from the cross bike supply box.
For riding 8 miles on the road, a few on the Columbia trail, then 10- whatever I want at Nassau/ voorhees, this thing rips.
Gave some love to my misfit, still my best fitted bike.
Cleaned up the 10 year old wheelset. Still haven't touched that Chris King rear hub or the SKF square taper BB.
Added American Classic prestas, new yellow tape and some fresh nobby nic 2.6's
Also put the white Expedo flats on
