I already switched the wheels for the Fulcrum 4's I got for the Ritchey. I am ambivalent about the crankset, though. I LOVE the look of the 7410 Dura Ace crank. I have one on the Ritchey as well, and switching to a 7700 small ring makes it work perfectly with 10 speeds (the chain sometimes hung up in No Man's Land with a 10 speed chain and 8 speed rings), but I don't know if that will still work for 11 speeds.

There are nuances to language. Try to keep up.

Is that thing where people say they can detect weather changes in their bad joints true, or is it a myth?

more like too wide, so the skewer wonít screw in.

Right, so when you try to screw the TA back in, you need to push on the drive side dropout till the TA threads into it?

You would think so would ya. I ride on Belll Isle in Detroit. The road goes around the outside perimeter of the island. Not only does it feel like a headwind all the way around that bloody thing but it doesn't get any better if you stop and go the other way!

Risky riding that close to Canada, isnít it?

I canÖ but I had soft tissue repair and am mildly arthritic. Snow and rain make it hurt the day before generally

correct, but itís more like press both sides as hard as I can while my wife screws the TA in. Thatís not normal.

Dang. I'm accustomed to only hearing about that in oldsters Sorry to hear. Ice cream or something delicious in her future.

Broken hip people did ok today. The national crit champion beat me, but I did beat a world champion for second. Actually finished third in the field as we were racing with the 40 year old whippersnappers

That would make fixing a flat by yourself a pain.

1) People are friendly in Canada.

2) There's a big river there.

It's true. My right ankle feels like it's glowing before large thunderstorms
