2 piece SP ===> best damn'd SP I've usedJohnG

I've got just about every major brand (Campy, Thomson, USE, etc) all and that AC 2 piece post is the "best" SP going. Keep up the good work.

Only suggestion would be to NOT use locktite on spoke nips.... makes it near impossible to re-true a wheel.... especially when the wheel is improperly dished.

thanks for the inovative "home grown" products!

John, thanks for the good words on the seat post! You should consider trying our ti post! As for the suggestion on Lock-Titeing spokes, we were using Spoke Prep by Wheelsmith but We found it made the spokes, especially the XL spokes "wind up" too much. So, we are using Spoke Freeze by DT Swiss now. It allows us to build up the wheel while it is wet and it will freeze them after we are done. According to DT, you can try the wheel up to 6 times after it is applied. As for the out of dish wheel, please tell me about it. I am curious what is up. Let me know on the wheel.

question!!weiwentg

when's the 420 gram deep section rim coming out?
and you mentioned that building up one of the 24 hole 350g clinchers at the rear means no warranty unless you weigh a hundred pounds. were you serious? I weigh in at 120 ........

The 420 rims will be available in 6 to 8 weeks. We are currently taking orders for them. We have a limited number coming in on the first batch, so get them while they're hot! As for the 350 rim in a 24 hole, Yes, we recommmend that for a 24 hole rear 350 the rider be a 100 lb rider. As for the warranty, I hate to say it, but yes the warranty would be void if something were to happen do to a manufacturer defect. To date, the rim has been Excellent! We haven't had any problems with them, manufacturer or crash wise with this rim. I wouldn't worry too much and just ride happy! You should be ok on it.
