Most nations aren’t looking at the approved list for stuff to buy, they’ve mostly all had their own internal programs
Exactly. Even quite low ranking teams seem to have at least sponsorship arrangements with manufacturers, if not R&D collaborations.
BC will be bummed that everyone else has time to copy the Hope bike before Tokyo 2021.
They won't have to copy it, they can just buy it - them's the rules, and with an extra year Hope might actually get deliveries out to customers in time, which was looking a bit questionable. They were tight for getting BC the 40 units needed for Tokyo.
They probably can't copy it, because there's no good reason for UCI to reopen the homologation window, so Tokyo 2021 gear should be picked from the already existing list of gear qualified for the abandoned Tokyo 2020.
I built a 27.5 KOM and ERD was 560-something
Good point well made. WTB KOM ERD chart:
dt Swiss d460 (the disc version of the 460)?
There are some who might question whether the R460 can really be called "tubeless compatible" when it lacks a bead retaining bump at the junction between the bead shelf and the centre channel.
any particular length?
Whatever you assumed in your calculation. danstuff's recent experience suggests sticking to the spoke manufacturer's nipples to be on the safe side, which you may get with the spokes from some shops when you're buying spokes individually.
Personally, I like building with the DT Hex nipples just because it's quicker to get the hex driver onto the nipple than it is to engage a conventional spoke key on the square.
I'd round up the spoke size to 263mm wouldn't I?
No, you'd round down to 262
Didn't actually have to spend half an hour doing this
Had to unbox 10715 to save some space in my small flat
It's all good as long as the waffle isn't blue
