Faye gets her real wheels!!!

Faye, w/her temp wheelsI‘ve been using spare 26″ wheels to help me with positioning and installing various items in my build-up of my RANS Citi Crank Forward. Wednesday, 04/15, components for her wheels began to arrive. Thursday, 04/16, I posted White Industries components received by my LBS.

YES! Faye has her real wheels!

You’ve seen her hubs. The rear hub an eccentric ENO line of hubs allows me to make this bike a single speed/fixie.Rear & front hubs Wheels, shod with tiresFront wheel, w/DT Swill SkewerRear Wheel, w/modified [sans] derailleur hanger

Here is a picture of one of her rims. Friday, 04/17, her spokes were scheduled to arrive and then I hope the wheel building begins. If it does, I’ll pick up the wheels, take a few pictures, shod then with the Bontrager Cruizer Tires I purchased earlier, and take more pictures.  No wheel Friday, 04/17 or Saturday, 04/18.  In fact, no wheel until Thursday, April 23, 2009. I think they look swell.  I have a few adjustments to make. The bike is scheduled to go to my LBS Saturday, 04/25 for final build. I hope to have her back Monday.
