ordered some roadie bb5's for the monstercross build. Payed 50 shipped for two bnib setups. Looking for 3x9 sti's now.
Last weekend I worked as Tech support for a training camp. Responsible for 17 bikes for 3 days...I was busy.
This morning I repaired a front derailleur that was the subject of a dump shift under load. DON'T do that people. The cage got twisted and my ride partner was stuck in the big ring for the 2 hours in the hills. East German resistance training!
Swapped out the 11-25 cassette for a 11-28 to help with hills on the LOOK with the regular double crank (all are SRAM red)
Added a link to the chain to compensate for the extra teeth. The whole drivetrain only has a few hundred miles on it, so I figured it was safe.
And, while I had it all apart, swapped the Rival front derailleur for a Force. Went out for a short ride up the hills to make sure everything works well (it does)
Took the old 10 speed cassette and put it on my old set of road wheels.
Here's the new wheelset, just got a ride in and they are far better than the Shimano WH-R550 Aero's that were on it before. I had nothing but issues with the R550s so hopefully they treat me better. It was between these and some reynolds, but I think I weigh too much for a 1500 gram low spoke count Solitude wheelset.
pulled some parts out of the bin and a frame off of the wall to make a new commuter/cruiser
A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"
