    Yeah, that's what I had last time but decided to go on the cheap this time and treat the sidewalls with aquasure.

    These items finally made it through customs...
    XTR Icetech Freeza rotors, 140mm.
    DT240 9mm thru bolt conversion end caps
    DT RWS 9mm thru bolt skewer

    The upgraded thru bolt system is noticeably stiffer than the conventional 5mm skewer system. A really worthy upgrade for about $60.

    I don't have much time on the finned rotors, but so far, they feel more powerful and much quieter than the non-icetech rotors it replaced. So far, very happy.

    Just saw that my Black Mountain Cycles road frame was delivered. Stoked to get it built for the weekend would be the understatement of the day

    It's called aquasure in France, there must be a different name in English, you can use it to treat the side walls.

    This is relatively similar to what Francois does on the Pro. This is normally used to repair wet suits for instance.

    Spurcycle bell.
    Locally made.
    Classic design.
    Sounds great (as advertised).
    Apple-esque packaging.

    Going on my belt drive SS townie next to the Felt coffee holder (the good one not the cheap one), L&M 500, and daughters Hello Kitty horn from her first bike thirteen years ago. Between the bell and the horn yes-you can-hear-my train-a-coming....

    Yes. I actually prefer these over ATACs (and Crank Brothers' pedals).

    We're waiting for the pics of them on road wheels in an Enve fork showing clearance with your assorted models of brakes -- heck, it's already been 11 hours since your post. For us you don't have to have them glued up, just inflated....

    Also, not sure when you added the tagline to your avatar, but +1 mon ami.

    Thanks. Probably hard to source currently ?

    I thought the Pro coating was different in being thick enough to add some sidewall protection to cuts ? AFAIK simple cotton casings from FMB come already treated and do not require aquasure. That's definitely the case for the CX tubulars.

    The MKS US-B pedals can easily be found online. Merry Sales is one of the (US) distributors, but I've seen them available from numerous online retailers. With an MSRP of under $100, they're a very good bargain.

    MKS US-B. I reviewed the forthcoming US-B Nuevo (same pedal, but with optional cleat guides), which you can read here.
