The wheels were assembled using upgraded rims, and 11Ga. spokes. The front drum brake works great! I haven't checked yet, but I'm certain the front hub is running on conventional ball bearings instead of the caged ball type. The tires are Kevlar belted.

I haven't checked yet, but I don't think anything will need to be upgraded. DV is 6' tall, so we will probably use a layback seat post. The wheels will be trued using a dial indicator...the tires will also have to be trued, and then each wheel balanced.

Thanks go to Justin for supplying this bike.

Your Welcome..
