The most important part of the transformation has been the wheels. Surly Rolling Darryls with nice red rim strips.
A new 3.8 Larry will be mounted on the front wheel upon its arrival next week:) I may eventually get one for the rear wheel also.
I had to keep the original hubs as they are just too good to let go. The DT Swiss 370 on the rear wheel has performed flawlessly and the Paul on the front wheel is...well...It's a Paul hub. What more needs to be said.
I absolutely love the new look and tomorrow night you can find me on the trails at Elm Creek Park Reserve. My lights are charged and ready to go. I would be out there tonight, but my back is need of some tender loving care. So its off to the basement I go for a core work session and some serious flexibility work.
