Gone Fishin'

HEY!

I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

Dan's CVT Bike VIII: Knobby Tires, New Rear Spokes, and More Foot Clearance

Just a couple of photos there. Things I've learned:

1. The shift pod for the CVT hub can be run along the seatstay, gaining precious shoe sizes of clearance.
2. Kenda Kwick 32c tires do fit the Windsor Clockwork frame, with about 2mm to spare.
3. The one-cross rear wheel is the only way to go with a Nuvinci Hub. The wheel built up nice and strong and true with a minimum of fuss.
4. The bike rides nicely and is a little more comfortable with larger volume tires at 70lbs as opposed to less volume and 90lbs presure.
