Rhythm on the Road

It took a month to put this wheel set ready and running due to some technical difficulties. I had to wait for the right type of tubes to be available at the LBS. I also had a difficult time deciding if I should buy my desired tire size even though the available tires are not of the same type. Most importantly I don't have a thru axle fork for the front wheel, that is why I am only using the rear set. ^^

At the first crank, I heard the spokes stretching and scratching side by side. After a few more kicks everything was silent, except for the sweet sound of the pawls inside the hub! And then the rest was a part of history of my fun time....

Bontrager Rhythm Elite

After a month of waiting and day dreaming I finally have this wheel set for my planned single speed setup. A month from now she will soon hit the pavements of our local airport with the BMX dudes. I am sure she will be an apple of their eyes, a 26 inches single speed setup. I bet Lagum will decide to shift to this rig!!! Yum Yum Yum!!!
