    Holy cow, how long a stem do you need for those rims? That would suck to have to fit that tube in your jersey pocket.

    I like that they wrote "carbon" on the saddle, in case you didn't notice it was made of carbon fiber

    <edit> Isn't Sampson the company that has a new groupo out? Shifters, der, and all

    those Blackwell 100s have been out long enough for me to have had the opportunity to build one up to a Powertap hub. ****ing pain. Spokes were around 190mm or so.

    Zipp gave in and now has a 100mm deep rim. as well as a "true negative drag" rear wheel that's actually a 650 disk surrounded by an 808 rim or something. interesting to look at, if nothing else. their catalog reads like some serious propaganda.

    I have some 85mm deep carbon wheels, and luckily Topeak makes a pretty nifty adapter that works great. I don't think it'd work too well with another 15mm of rim though, might be cutting it a bit close, but probably doable.

    Same rim as the old Blackwell 85mm wheels too, but I guess they've moved on to the 3-digit wheels...
