Thanks Rubbish! I assumed that's what it was but wanted to be sure. I have a team mate who took G&C after a knee surgery and it helped get back on the bike sooner than later. Worth a try!

 

I got the okay from my PT to get back on the bike but only spin easy. I'll take it...

 

Nice photos, Count!

So my Surly build had been kind of pushed back, I need to get out of debt and I've been sinking a lot of money into photog equipment. I'm still looking at parts though.

 

Anybody know anything about the Velocity A23 rim durability wise? It's a wider rim so it's got room for a wider tire, but on smaller tire sizes it rides like a tubular (which from what I've heard is a good thing), so it sounds perfect for what I need it for.

 

One of the guys from All City has it on his cross bike, so I'm assuming it'll hold up to the type of riding I'd like to do on it.

 

Picture of bike in question....

Soul Vice, I'm gonna throw A23's on two different bikes. They're the same profile as Aeroheads + wider so I don't think there'll be any problems baring you don't go do some low spoke counts. I've had good luck in the past with Aeroheads. Honestly though, durability is about 75% builder-influenced and the other 25 component influenced. I find building wheels to be fairly intuitive as long as patience isn't running low, but if you don't know how to build then seek out the most experienced builder you can.

so i know a lot of you spend shit loads of money on your bikes

 

i need a single speed wheel set for around 100 bucks, im aware that i will get sub par quality for this price but i need to ride my bike and thats the money i have

 

i found these

http://www.roadbikeoutlet.com/bike-parts-and-components/fixed-gear-single-speed-bicycle-parts/tec9-dv30-deep-v-30mm-track-fixed-gear-wheelset-white-1.html

 

are they going to fall apart after a month?

 

would be nice if they lasted through summer riding 20 miles or so every few days

 

if anyone can give me a better bargain that would be great

 

thanks for any advice

Zanzabar... I don't know anything about that brand, but for $100 for a new set of wheels I can't imagine you'll get much use out of them. I'm sure you've looked already but I've seen some good deals on ebay and Craigslist that are in your price range.

Finally got out for a ride today after a week of no riding. Felt good to be out and about but it was obvious that the knee is not coming together. Ugh.

For getting cheap wheels, go to a long running local bike shop, explain your situation, and ask if they have any old wheel sets laying around (long running mom and pop shops are best). likely they will have something in the backroom or basement that will work out for you and often you can get great deals this way. helps the shop help you.

 

also, i love riding bikes. my 21 speed steel touring bike (an old green preformance frame with stock 105, and some kevlar tires at 110psi has been tearing it up. taking it down many a mountain bike trails, mob on my cities gnarly glass and pothole filled cracked asphalt, bunny hop curbs, and basically just ride like a jackass lol. while not light ((28?lbs) with lights and a rear rack it still doesnt feel to heavy when climbing.

 

im starting to think i dont really need a cross bike at all. i think what im trying to get at bullit proof touring bike the best bike all around if u have decent riding ability??

 

oh and here is a link to a movie im about to watch. it seems to be about cycling i hope its good.

$100 wheelset? good luck man, up your budget by 80 bucks and you can get something alright, but if you ride a lot i don't see that set working out too well.

like joker said, CL...

boxcars - been there, and i can say that hot epsom salt baths work wonders with muscle pulls and general recovery...

coupled with TONS of light stretching, you should be quick to mend.

First ride today in about 5 weeks (it's been all work and no play lately). 60km wasn't too bad although I blew up about 2km into a climb. Going back tomorrow.

 

Giro is about to start as well!
