:bluduh

Does anybody have a shimano ultegra fd-6500 with a 31.8 mm clamp that they'd trade me in exchange for a shimano ultegra fd-6500 with a 28.6 clamp?

:bluduh

And in my case, a 100% chance of it ending in a massive face plant. :lol3

Mebbe. Lemme check. May be D/A with the 31.8 clamp.

That happened to inmate John Bryer while riding in Moab. I don't know if he was riding a 29er, but he broke his face and posted the video of it in JM or Inmates. It was a nasty hit which required a hospital stay.

Custom wheel parts or source of complete wheels....
 
Hi Guys,
I want to build up a set of weird wheels for a cruiser.
Do you have any recommendations of places to buy parts or even complete wheels to my parts specs?
I've done some searching and haven't come across the combination I'm looking for. I'm looking for a 29" rim with 2-speed Sturmey-Archer hub.

Thanks,
Justin

I have seen those. I need to look into how wide the Alex Rims are??? I've never heard of Alex rims before. There are sets with the Weinmann DP18 & DA16 rims but they are both very narrow. I'd like to go a bit wider to be able to try a 45mm-ish tire. I was also leaning towards the red anodized hubs.:D

That first link to me looks like the rims in the pictures might be the DA16 rims although the page doesn't mention them? Maybe my next step will be to call Velo-Mine.

He did lots of things really wrong in that video. Bit him in the (face) rear hard.

28.6mm = steel
31.8mm = AL
34.9mm = CF

*usually

I've got one 34.9 derailleur and it ain't for sale. :nah I may have an extra clamp for a braze-on if you're still interested

If custom colors is as weird as you want to get, try these guys: http://www.bicyclewheelwarehouse.com


They've done a couple of set of wheels for me. They do a good job. And you can choose a lot of different options.

Tubeless tires
 
What's the scoop on these? Apparently lots of off-road riders are using them. Why are they, and what do you do if you have a puncture?

All my bikes are tubeless. You just pull the valve stem and put a tube in. Do not attempt tubeless without stans rims. I have not had good luck with anything else.

I have tried bontrager with the plastic rim strip, had a catastrophic failure hopping a log at high speed, blew the tire off the rim.
I tried Mavic Krsyrium ES road wheels, they work well but if you let them go flat over a month of non-use the bead is really hard to seat again.
I run stans rims on 4 bikes now. I have burped the tire (where you take a corner too fast or land a jump wrong and pull the bead away from the rim, as soon as I straighten up the bead reseats. I just have to add a little air.
I am 165 pounds and I run about 22-24psi in my mountain tires and 50-60 in my road tires.
