Okay big update!
Christopher has been back in the shop working feverishly after tending to some family matters last month. Forward post haste! There are some great frames moving through the cue. From 650B MTB to disc cyclocross. Things are really picking up after NAHBS. In order to help Christopher focus on the magic I’ll (Jim the partsguy!) be more involved and handling the wheel building. There always seems to be enough interest in the wheels that we feel it’s worth pursuing with vigor. More on that next week.
Speaking of wheels I have a few new Italian bits to build up some road wheels. With three thrilling weeks of the Giro just concluded how could I not buy some Italo-equipment! The Miche brand has always been interesting to this Campy guy and I’ve been pleased with the performance/value of the Miche cassettes. With the reduction of Campagnolo hub options(Record only now) they seem the obvious choice if budget is an issue. Nice simple alloy shell and cartridge bearing construction hubset. Bonus is they make a Shimano/SRAM freehub body too. So I can re-purpose these in the future if need be. The Velocity A23 rims look great and I can’t wait to check out the reported difference in ride quality.
Stay tuned as I’m cleaning out the basement and there are some scratch and dent frames we will be selling at a discount. So if you are a good match for the frame dimensions lucky you!
Keep the rubber side down!
