Year end 2016

Webmaster

Thanks for your support in 2016 and happy new year.

For the next week I’ll be doing year-end stuff like inventory and accounting. I’m also planning some downtime and will finish out the year with a couple sweet rides. The shop never closes and will happily take your orders but they won’t hit the post office until January 3.

Use the Sapim Force

Webmaster

I added Sapim Force spokes to the spoke weight calculator.

Sapim Force spokes are triple-butted 2.18/1.8/2.0mm. This is very similar to Sapim Race (identical stiffness) but with more material on the vulnerable elbow section. I like Force for touring, heavier riders, and to reduce risk of elbow breakage. As we can see the weight penalty is very small.
