I very much guess you´ll be offering in one of those projects a super ultralight singlespeeder. that is very much anticipated by me since a few years. keep the good stuff coming.
greetings from germany hamburg. thank youMay 21, 2013 at 2:30 pm #93362jess
I have DA 7900 and I was thinking of changing to the 9000′s.
However my understanding is that the 10 spd cassette will not work on the 9000 11 spd.
Reason is because I like my ultegra 12-30 for climbing.
All other places i’ve asked mentioned this is not possible.
Also IF not possible, was thinking of changing the brakes as I hear this is a pretty big change. I have enve 3.4′s and more braking power may be a good thing, even tho 7900 brakes seem fine.
I also think the 9000 shifters are so much more comfortable than the 7900 which are fat and bulky.

I want to buy tubless ready carbon road wheels. Is the bead on velocity and or Hutchinson R/T andy different?
Would I be just as well off to cnvrt my Hyperon and or Bulletts to tubeless and would this be safeApril 27, 2013 at 5:53 pm #93499J.C. Burge
I am a licensed structural engineer with a lot of experience using various titanium alloys in the aerospace industry. I do not see any valid reason to use titanium pawls. High grade steels have equal or better strength and ductility at the high hardness range required. Titanium’s lowwer density will reduce the inertia of pawls. But, it will also increase the tendency to skip under high loads.April 25, 2013 at 6:34 pm #93498Jason M
For the rear CK R45 you say “At 55% tension left to right this is about as far as we’d consider adequate, but certainly not across the line of reasonable.”
You make it sound like there is something better but even the ORC is 54%. Am I missing something here, the CK R45 has the best ds/nds ratio out of the bunch does it not (shimano 10speed at least)??April 22, 2013 at 3:37 pm #93599Rems
Could you provide the spoke bed thickness for the xr279?
I am interested in this rim for a light-ish tandem wheelset and hope to be able to built at a rather high spoke tension (+/- 1300N/m)to ensure solidity and stiffness.
I want to avoid spokes puling through he rim as it often happens with the Rolf Prima tandem set — hence the quest for a thicker spoke bed.

Blueride #: What tire was on the rim?April 19, 2013 at 2:01 pm #93631Marcin
What about the crankset and pedals? Are the pedals aerolite?? Crankset- I got no idea…April 19, 2013 at 1:10 pm #93596blueride
I have a set of SL23 wheels that I’m happy with, but changing a flat tire alongside the road is quite challenging. Fit is tight as tubeless-ready rims are.I mean TIGHT. Going to see if Velo plugs help.
In your SL23 review you note the rims come in silver, but this doesn’t appear to be the case.
Happy trails!April 18, 2013 at 4:23 am #93335Vincent
Does the C35 have the same D2 rim profile as the C50?April 17, 2013 at 7:58 pm #93497Brad
Gokiso “super climber” at a combined weight of 675g is hardly a contender for a weight-weenie climber’s needs. The ‘suspension’ doesn’t seem practical to me, gimic, and would actually increase loss of tension on the non-pulling spokes compromising durability. The spokes are elastic enough to handle stress of most uses. The freehub body design is interesting and the Gokiso materials seem high grade with precise manufacturing. The rear hub geometry seems less than ideal. And someone suggested $3k for a set of hubs?? ouch.April 17, 2013 at 7:05 pm #93496Dave
Gokiso? I had never heard of them before. In looking at their spec’s, it would appear the the bracing angle of the spoke wouldn’t approach that of someone like Alchemy (if I read their spec’s correctly).
Interesting none the less. ~$3k for a set of hubs? 29 year warranty? Wow…April 15, 2013 at 2:07 am #93495Tim Voegele-Downing
Or even have a look at the fabled Gokiso Hubs…April 14, 2013 at 12:45 am #93569Gordon Oakley
I have the enves on my bike. I need to really get them tight to avoid a very annoying screeching sound when riding up any decent gradient. Anyone else with a similar experience?April 5, 2013 at 2:53 am #93545Troy M.
The new ORC UL is now available. Jeremy from Alchemy was showing them off at City Velo in Denver today.
