I said I was going to provide 20 wheel building tips in 2009. Well, a slew of distractions conspired to keep the number to merely 6. My apologies!
For 2010 the series will continue, and I vow to complete the remaining 14. Thanks for your interest and I hope you’ll feel your patience is rewarded.
Nothing quite greets the new year like a brilliant new bike and Sam Whittingham has just finished a doozy. This is for someone at River City Bicycles in Portland.
What an unforgettable seat stay bridge treatment.
Check this integrated light.
More images of this fabulous machine can be found here. Don’t you agree Sam’s bike is fortunate to have such nice wheels? Those are Ghisallo Elegant rims with Vittoria Evo XN cross tubulars. They’re 32mm wide with a pale gray tread and minimal diamond pattern. A luxurious, all surfaces ride.
Happy New Year everyone. We all have high expectations for 2010. Here’s wishing yours come true.
