Itâ€™s been quite busy at the shop this week. We have about a dozen Ti frames weâ€™re trying to get done and the shop has been transformed into a bit of an assembly line.
Since every frame needs a set of wheels, there is a lot of wheel building going on as well. We have Phil Wood Hubs and XT hubs ready to be laced.
And then laced and ready to be trued.
Weâ€™re huge advocates of the bicycle as a means to slow down and see the world around us and as such we make our fair share of Touring and Sport touring frames. However weâ€™re not above pedaling down the road as fast as possible and a nice set of carbon deep dish wheels often aids in that pursuit. I just finished gluing up some Conti Competition tubular tires to a set of Zipp 1080 wheels. I noticed the 1080â€™s were a popular choice in the Time Trial at Road Nationals this year as it was much easier to handle in the crosswinds than a disc. Wind often comes into play in both Time Trials and Triathlons and the less energy spent wrestling your bike down the road means more energy exerted on the pedals.
