thought I would send you an update of my Rivendell 26 inch wheel
road bike. I made a few changes, and like it more with each change.
It works better with slightly skinnier tires, so off came the Conti
1.3's, and on went Panaracer Urban Max 1/25, which seem a LOT smaller
put on a mostly Dura Ace kit: 8 speed front derailluer, 10 speed
rear, nine speed downtube shifters. I really like the precision
of the Dura Ace brake levers as well, zero play, any cable movement
goes right to the brakes. Same for the dt shifters, I really like
the precise shifting they allow with shorter cable runs. Shimano
PD 6402 look pedals replaced the previous Looks. Yeah, that Silca
color pump does not match, but it does not rattle, so it stays on.
Indy, my 105 lb. Labradoodle posing with the bike. He is very photogenic!!
He thanks you for your site!!!
