Arm warmer type deals I think. But more for aero, and not the cold.

Yeah, I kinda figured that's what Scrod meant, although I've never heard them called that. Maybe he should also sell aero booties (shoe covers) as well.

Like this.

Just about everyone who puts on serious mileage here in SD wears some sort of arm cover because the sun is brutal and will burn you up without mercy. They wick moisture and actually do have a cooling effect when you're sweating like crazy.

They're also really nice in those unfortunate parts of the country that have cold weather.

Go to a bike shop and ask them for a reflector shim (most shops have a box of them sitting around). Cut it to the size you need. Done.

If I wanted to re-space my rear Phil track hub from 120 to 130 do I have to send it to Phil or will they just sell you the parts?

I'm really not sure. It's easy enough to do but doing it yourself may void some sort of wacky warranty or whatever. Give 'em a call on Tuesday and ask.

Just picked this kit up. Really well made and legit.
If they're doing one for retrogression I'd definitely recommend picking one up. (They run small tho. Size up )

How do the new Andel cranks compare to the IMO much sexier looking RSC1 Andels?
On that note, any idea where I can find a white andel RSC1 crank? I believe leader had a version back in the day.
