I needed a new shop heater so I decided to fix things up a little and put some of my non-wheel-building skills to use. The new heater is a big dog electric one so it got its own circuit. I’m not excited about electric heat but this summer I’m getting solar on the roof so it made sense. I also wired both lights to the same switch. I finally put some trim around the window I put in during remodel 1.
I sheetrocked and insulated the ceiling. Then I rearranged the rim hooks to add some more storage space.
I was working on a classy remodel project once and the drywaller was adding texture. He was slopping gobs of mud on the drywall and just leaving it to dry rather than smoothing it out. I had always sanded, re-mud, wait for it to dry, sand again and just keep repeating till the walls were smooth. Ahhhh the dust! So I asked him about the texture he was applying. “It’s called an imperfect smooth wall. We do it in all the new homes. Isn’t it great?” I nodded agreeably but was thinking to myself what an easy out. I added some tire tracks for effect.
One of many Chris King colors.
They just happen to match great with Stan’s rims.
This weekend’s casualties from racing cross. If we race there next year I’m going to sponsor that curb. Two rim transfers coming right up. Yes, I have them in stock. Yes, I can get them done so you race on them next week.
I have built wheels with Schmitt hubs in the past and they are the sliced bread of dynamos. Now I have a U.S. distributor stocking them. Prices are $310 for the disc models and $253 for rim brake.
Crest, Arch EX and Flow EX rims. 29er only ~reg $90. Now $60 each.
Alpha 340 road rims reg $120. Now $85 each. Iron Cross rims reg $88. Now $70 each.
The Velocity Major Tom is the ultimate tubular cyclocross rim. The Major Tom has a wider profile to match wider cross tires and a seam relief channel. This gives the tire a more rounded profile and a bigger gluing surface between the rim and tire for a more secure hold. $60 each while they last.
I’m now using Bike Flights to ship my handbuilt bicycle wheels. To ship a pair of wheels they are 1/2-1/3 the cost of UPS. So, order up a pair of great new wheels and get rolling for less.
