Picked up a Rapha core bundle with the 25% off and picked up some chinook pass el tires from owly to mount on my mxxxxxo. Got in a short shakedown ride yesterday and am happy so far with the new aquisitions.

Got me a single-speed city bike. New job is 4km away and getting into cycling kit for that distance I thought was a bit silly.


Also: ordered my first Rapha, a set of Core bibs (they really should be called My First Rapha ... okay maybe not)

I think I want one of those. Is it alloy with a steel business end? I do often wish the Park Master one was a bit lighter.

I would also like to know which bladed spoke tool you use and where to place it when tightening nipples. I'm going to use bladed spokes on my next wheelset for the sake of frivolity and because I haven't yet.

Yes, alloy with a steel end

I use this, VERY good tool..left and right hand available. If 'RH, you hold in your left hand.

Hold it as low as possible, as close to the nip with room for the spoke wrench.

Also easy to find

Spoke wrench

I about bought that dt swiss toll but got a good deal on a 4 side park and went for that instead. Am I a huge amateur though that I prefer a 3 side tool? Just goes in easier, much faster cuz it goes directly on the nipple. I have never stripped a nipple either. I mean I know the 4 side is better but...

I don't know why I bought this, but I just couldn't resist. I don't think I'll ever be able to get myself to mount the thing.
