Strengths:    Lightweight. Engagement seems adequate. They roll :-)

Weaknesses:    Freehub bearing went rough on rear hub after just 1,500 miles. Probably just a bad bearing or bad seal, but still an issue. Velocity is a local company where I live so a replacement bearing at no cost was available the next day through my lbs. Will follow up again to see if same problem arises.

Bottom Line:   
Nice looking set up hubs built up on Velocity Aerohead rims with Sapim spokes. Weight came in at 1,420 grams on the lbs scale w/o skewers. W/skewers the weight was 1,525.

Best options I've seen so far were a used Salsa Las Cruces (why don't they still make it ?) Or perhaps this BikesDirect cafe sprint ... Read More »

The wheels I'll be using are Velocity A 23 rims with White Indus ... Read More »

Light hitch-mount rack for road and MTB?

I bought a 1-1/4" receiver hitch so I could carry two road (carbon frames) or MTBs (29ers) with a Mazda Miata. I'm looking for a light rack, will probably need to be a wheel tray type, due to sloping top tubes. Any recommendations?Read More »
