Just before leaving Manhattan, I found it. It was parked outside a Chinese restaurant on 3rd near 77th. I imagine that it's found a new life delivering food, which is as NYC as a bike can get.

I would prefer something a bit wider, I believe they are 22.4 external, but I guess aero rims are mostly made for 23c tires and not 25c. Best price I've found so far on a new set is 1335

I did find a set of HED Jet 5 used for 650 but passed up on them.
I just bought my November Rail 52s for $1460 shipped, seem to me that's a significantly superior rim than the DA wheel, might even run it tubeless. Emilio is the expert, but I wouldn't pay anything close to that amount of money for DA9k wheels.

Any reason not to run a 6800 cassette on a SRAM 1x bike?

I wouldn't think so. I'm running one on my SRAM 11s road bike without any issues. The 1x group uses the same cassettes as their standard road groups, right?

We talked about doing one of those rides/races here, keeping my old Cannondale Criterium for it.

Weeknight races, yes. We've kind-of started a thing were cat-4 races like myself treat the 1/2/3 road racers like **** all the time, stuff them on entry and exit, push the bike off their shoulder, run with the bike sideways, etc. They deserve it anyway. 90% of 1/2/3 roadies are really, really bad at CX. I suspect they are uncomfortable with the bike moving, am certain they've never done an auto-x in their life.

If anyone wants a kit, let me know. Bibs and jersey are going to be $220 together, arm warmers will be $25 I think, vest is $90 or so. Firm prices coming soon.

Bros, we need to have a serious talk about my diversion from the road bike. I am passionately in love with my Stigmata on 32mm Spesh tubeless rubbers. I have basically no desire to ride the Evo anymore, but it has big-*** race wheels so I'll definitely keep it for road races. Is this normal? Is this a winter thing? It doesn't even have two front chain rings. Am I still a man? If not, was I ever a man? If I roll down to Austin to chill out for a few days, which bike do I take?

What is more manly than blowing off the front of your group ride on a 1x'd 32'd cross bike? It is impossible to be more diesel than that.

Nice work there. A few questions that you probably answered for me already.
1. Where do you source your aluminum from?
2.That double butted?
3. Any idea the alloy?
4.Do you heat treat the frame afterwards?
5. Why not steel?

I planned to do a steel with true temper but with them pulling out of the steel bike tube business I may go with someone else's 'kit'. Rowland Sach's frame kits are affordable.

I have my first cross race tomorrow. It's been raining here 11 of the past 14 days, and it's torrential at the moment. Should be interesting!

Bros,
We are doing a second kit run of our kit, quite a few locals decided they wanted a kit after seeing it in the flesh. It looks fantastic and it's affordable, $210 for jersey/bibs, $25 for arm warmers, $90 for a vest if 6 or more buy. We went with the mid-grade kit because our old team kit has two years on it and wearing extremely well, will go longer, and everyone in the kit likes the cham with no complaints. We are on a two-year kit-interval so don't expect anything new from us next summer.

Dirty Dutch Pieter is our model:

Go ahead and order if interested, if 12-units of any item are purchased, the cost will be updated to the cheaper price, cards are typically charged at the store closure date of October 10th.

Thanks and let me know if you have questions.
