    Yeah, radial lacing is pretty much the standard for rim-brake road front wheels. What looks a little odd is a front radial wheel with so many spokes. But the large hub flanges should accommodate the...

    Why not just get the Ludwig built with/for the Alfine hub?

    I would recommend just building a new wheel rather than rebuilding the existing wheel with the new hub. At best you could reuse the rim, but it doesn't look like the bike comes with great rims...

    Yeah, me too! -- I've somehow managed to only get rained on once this spring/summer. But that one time was pretty intense. :) (And now I'll get rained on consistently.) It helps greatly that I can...

    I would do a trainer FTP test first for a benchmark, since it is a nicely controlled environment. Sufferfest has a great video ("Rubber Glove ") to guide you through it and entertain you.

    I'd be game for an on-road FTP test some AM. I've never ridden at Fort Hunt - any access restrictions? I'd probably vote for the 20 minute format (vs. hour), just to keep time sane. Looks like...

    I suspect that if I had time to get out to these trails, I would also exchange my rigid SS for a hardtail or better. Sure it could work -- but why do that to oneself? -- But I don't expect to...

    You probably just need to pull back the rubber further. For my Shimano shifters I just rolled up the rubber hoods from the base of the hood, not the front. You'll see a 5mm hex bolt exposed...

    I think the general assertion that "having women run on the same course at the same time" is rather meaningless when you then say that the start times are staggered. One cannot conclude that women...

    I think we just have different definitions of "high maintenance". This sounds like a lot of (expensive) work for something that starts so damn expensive in the first place. Don't get me wrong; I...

    I love that they also added "DISC" just in case that wasn't completely obvious from the presence of rotors (and lack of a brake track) :)

    I think AC looked to Stradalli for inspiration here.

    Yes, that also makes sense. I do like having data-backed confidence in races to know that either I can continue to push at a specific pace -- or to know that a pace is indeed unsustainable.

    The L/R power would be nice. And Garmin makes good hardware, so hopefully this follows suite.
