Legolas - unoffically

-- White tires are faster. It's a fact. And they improve the likelihood of planing.
-- I've got a lot to say about this bike. It's from Rory. It's front-end is different than most of my bikes. It's got super fancy campy shifting (10 speed 8 speed hack works perfectly). It replaces my RBT. It's for cross and commuting and trail riding. I can only do one of those right now. It's fancy.
-- oh yeah: And I wish i could take the trails home today on this bike.

Your bar wrap needs a little work.

Looks real fly. How do you do the hack? I've heard of other combos...

Andrew/Christopher: no, but I didn't read all of SB's article -- The hack is from CX magazine.

Anon: that's my signature wrap. I stopped putting the little scrap around the clamp a few years ago.

regarding wrapping the bars, its not about the scrap. one can loosen the brake lever and thread the tape under the lever, then re tighten the brake.
