Hubs

20 April 2009

First point of concern? Hubs. I’m going to build up the wheels, so I’d like to have these a bit earlier. Since I want my wallet to properly hemorrhage money, I will attempt to get mostly period appropriate Campy components (ok, so I also want the bike to be gorgeous). That means C-Record. Enter these bad boys:

Somewhat of an impulse buy on my part, but the prices wasn’t too bad and they’re in good condition.

One advantage of getting period specific stuff – the spacings are correct, i.e. no cold setting required. The rims and spokes will be among a few modern components (likely Mavic Open Pros with DT Swiss or Wheelsmith butted spokes). Need to find those as some point, but that’s the least of my troubles.
