Thinking about building a new back wheel. If you guys could have ANY hub/rim combo, what would it be?

I know plenty of people who are willing to take my current White Industries/H+Son EERO build off my hands. I want something lighter. I ride on the street a lot, so it would have to be fairly strong. The wheel I have now is probably overkill for the kind of riding I do.


I've heard good things about kinlin XR-300s, or you could try Velocity Fusions, aeroheads, A23s, or even deep v's(they could still be fairly light depending on how you build them.

As for hubs, I have no problems with my formulas.

My starter project.
Needs so much work, haha but it gets me around esp @ critical mass.


Why do you have a single bar end shifter on your handlebars?

I originally had a 3-spd fixed stumey archer hub, recently took it off but the shifter is stuck on the bars.

Do a metric century, it's only 60 miles but still sounds cool. cool

but make sure you have water, proper cycling shorts, and a shitload of hand positions, like drops+hoods or maybe bullhorns, no track drops/risers, riding clipless is a plus since clips+straps can get kinda uncomfortable. Distance riding is all about staying comfortable, don't think you're doing yourself a favor by choosing a flat route, climbing and whatnot lets you move your back around for a second, instead of keeping that same angle for 100 miles.
and of course, have fun cool

The 722ts (not the heritage ones) and kagero are pretty nice.

Not to sound like a complete noob but what's the hate on Leader frames? I notice it on a bunch of different forums but never hear why

tbh, I think you should sell your trispoke and buy some more comfortable bars and bar tape.

I'm getting fucked up by skating.

How much do I have to spend to get a decent setup (with brakes)?

I've rode some and it's a lot of fun.

chill guys. just go out there and ride.

completely unrelated: 3rensho my brother is building for me/ 3rensho frameset he just got


Sad that most people ain't gonna really appreciate these in this thread. Fuckin spectacular bikes. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous. Downtube shifters are awesome on vintage road bikes and take some getting used to, but just like everything else practice makes perfect.

composites don't experience much plastic deformation before fracture, so they don't really go out of true, even though they are naturally slightly untrue. hed3s are fine for street fixed gear riding as long as its the front wheel and you're not doing bunny hops.

^ if you're just getting into riding/ want a specific color combination, they'll do. i heard they are heavy though. I've seen a lot of people riding em around here but they are based near me.

Thanks man, just gotta get some handle bar tape and cables on it and it'll be good to go! Super excited.
Those bikes are nice cool Not a lot of people appreciate vintage bikes in general but imo, these bikes look sexier than any all carbon, electronic shifting, super aero modern bikes.

Looking to get into riding, I've been looking at some Bikes on Craigslist. What do you guys think of these:

Norco Magnum SE. Shimano 600 - $250


Kona Hahanna - $100
June 19, 2012 @ 07:57 PM

You might have to double check my facts... But I'm pretty sure Norco is a Canadian brand and the Magnum SE was one of the higher end models. Shimano 600 is good stuff, but I don't think the frame is anything special. Chromoly double or triple butted maybe.

Considering it looks like it has low mileage, at least from the pics, $250 isn't a horrible price. I think you could get away with $150-200 considering the bike isn't made of nicer tubing. Still a great bike though. If it's your size, no dents or dings, and rides well, I'd go after it.
