Great story.

I am kind of an idiot about mechanical stuff. Could Bobby J tell just by sight that the wheel was going to work? Aren't there a lot of things that could have mismatched?

Not really...crappy shifting is better than a broken wheel

so nobody commented on it- but how well does a 9 speed cassette work with 10 speed shifters/chain? did he just leave it in your 11/12 and grind it out- or can a 10 speed set up work -okay- with a 9 speed cassette.

great story, great pics!

It's sloppy, but it can work.

Done it before just to see. Mostly works. Better than I expected actually, mostly just noisy.

Your signature is incorrectly spelled.

Ahh.. you know... I've only see than phrase spelled incorrectly.

After a quick google, your signature is indeed correct.

If you want it Canadian, there should be an "eh?" at the end. :-)

I would gladly trade any of my rear wheels for a story like that, the busted up 404, and photos. Even if you don't get anything back from them, you're waaay ahead of the game!

This photo on a frame with the wheel and a copy of you post on Slowtwitch. Priceless. Regardless of anything in the future, it is a great moment. Isnt't that the great thing about sports...these moments...the fact you were IN the race via your wheel makes that even cooler. Congratulations and thanks for sharing a cool bike story....have been reading about so many uncool stories in cycling, so nice to hear yours.



I miss you "Sports Night"

Those are the road skills you develop after being in the pro peloton for more than a decade. I think most of us amateurs would have bit it.

Great story! This proves that fancy wheels have very little to do with winning. Its all about the motor!
