One of theses days, I'll get one of the J-Teks to try out. Never heard a bad word about them.

I would never get a 130mm road bike again (well, assuming I go custom). I'd rather have 135mm spacing for the strength. Comparing similar components, you get stronger rear wheels without doing anything else. No weight gains for the WWs out there. If the Jtek is the way to go, I can use Shimano 10 135mm spacing hubs (White Industries, Tune, Shimano, Phil Wood, Chris King, etc.) with Campy everything else. No Campy 135mm options out there (I could get 132.5mm if I wish). I don't have to worry about neutral support!

Bike rides real nice on the road as well. I can't train off road most of the time as I'm riding before light and don't feel like riding proper cross like in the dark. I almost hit too many animals as it is on the road. Off road is dicey at best with big deer that are slow to move out of you way.

The next set of wheels on the bike are Phil Wood hubs I respaced my old hubs to 135mm) laced to Aeroheads. I have PR2 on them, but I have a set of Soma 35mm tires on the way I want to try out for fun. Should be real cozy! Report to follow on those tires.

I appreciate all the kind words from you people!

Once again, great bike!
I used a set of 6 0.3mm spacers. One before cassette in place of the Shimano 10 and the rest added in between each position. Worked real well. I would add a lockring that has more threads. Chris King makes one as does Wheels Mfg. It's an inexpensive way to go and you can use high quality cassettes like Dura Ace. I had a 12-25 7800 cassette on a King hub with my otherwise all Campy drivetrain.

my wife's bike has campy brifters and derailleurs with 10 speed sram chain, cassette, and crank. the jtek makes the shifting flawless and she gets to keep her pink chris king hubs.

They're not listed on the mfg's websites, but they will make them for you. I've been exploring this option on my Rivendell. For the Eisentraut, it's already been respaced and I am not comfortable with going further out to 135.

I think the ultimate road hub would be 145 though, no dish whatsoever and a large selection of tandem hubs to choose from. Co-Motion makes their "big guy" model, the Mazama, this way.

Y'all all know me.

Y'all know what I'm gonna say.

Y'all? Y'all say it any way.....

That's another sweet Zanc. All Mikes bikes rock, but with a succinctly classic yet different flavor. Like fine wine, they just keep getting better.

Enjoy it! I did just looking at it.
