Add 2+ Millimeters with this One Simple Trick!

If you want bigger, we can help. Need a little extra girth? Add 2+ millimeters with this one simple trick! Do you want more to grip? Add size INSTANTLY! Grab a hold of these two big round wheels for the fattest road tires you've ever seen! Your normal wimpy 23 millimeters could be a WHOPPING 2.5 CENTIMETERS! Now THAT'S BIG! Starting with 25mm? Go ahead, show your friends your 25mm. Then show them your huge 27.7mm Michelin Lithions mounted to the 24mm wide Kinlin XR-31T tubeless ready deep-aero road rim. At 480 grams it is light, strong, aero, wide, and a hell of a rim. They're also brand new. These young fatties just got hooked up with the experienced yet still tight Zipp 88/188 hub combo. The Zipps have seen a few miles, but they're only 300g combined and ready to take a pounding on the pavement. Sapim CX-Ray Straight Pull plays matchmaker for this deviant duo.  CX-Ray's super slender blades slice through the air and shows its best sides of strength and low weight. With just 16 spokes on the front and 20 in the rear, this project is not eligible for pork-play or any muddy messes lasting longer than a half-hour. 

 

This is a special edition wheelset. There has probably never been one until now, and there probably will never be one again. Pairs like this are rare and should be appreciated for their specific strengths and weaknesses. This particular wheelset will take its end user the same places they normally go, but a whole hell of a lot faster. If you don't believe me, give me $600 and call me a liar. 1460g of climbing potential from one of the fattest  road rims on the market equals insane descending grip as well as a ridiculously deep aero profile for the fastest ride you may have ever experienced without worrying if your rims would de-laminate. 165 pound weight limit. Laced in-house at Snyder Cycles. Rims, tires, tubes, rim strips, spokes, and nipples are all brand new. Hubs are used. No warranty. Only 1 pair available. Call to place your order by phone and pickup in-store.

Commandments of Bicycle Jousting: The Guts, The Glory.

Guest written by Gato. 

Hear ye! Hear ye!  Gather thine fools, wenches, naves, and such for the second annual steel-horse mounted jousting shenanigans.  Yonder in the kingdom of the Pub of Elliot...well, the parking lot behind it...the bravest will gather for the asinine tradition of mounting giant adult tricycles built for two, donning of latex horse heads, and whacking of foam rubber noodles.  

Whilst noodles will stingeth and swords may crosseth, the discomfort and humiliation will not end there*.  Your performance will be judged by a panel of your peers and possibly a crowd of jeers.  

 A competitive performance will be based on the following factors:

  1. Attire - Latex horse heads will be provided, but you will decide what flair to wear to woo the judges.  Will you dress like a jouster or a jester?  
  2. Attitude - A true jouster is more than just an athlete.  Do you have what it takes to win over the crowd and judges with your words of inspiration, whit, humor, or what Shakespeare would refer to as swaggerith?  
  3. Accuracy -  Gird thine loins! But no hits to the groin, face, spokes, or gears will be permitted.  This is self-explanatory right?

Doeth thoust the courage to joust?  Will thoust leave with pride or be denied?  Come find out at Elliot St. Pub on Thursday, June 18th at 8 p.m.
