I had to make one modification on the Stumpy from the last post. The disks on the Salsa Delgado Cross wheelset last weekend in anticipation of this ride were rubbing on the caliper pads.. Rather than messing with spacers on the calipers, I swapped the hoops out for the Speed City wheelset, which have a slightly different disk offset on the hubs for some reason. They worked fine. Last thing I needed in my present out of shape form is a drag brake. Since the Speed City set is shod with 700-28 Continental Gatorskins rather then 700-32 Panaracer Pasela Tourguards, they probably roll faster too. Right now I need all the help I can get.
As advertised, the Canyon Rim Trail was my destination from the North Mesa Estate. Nice. See you back on the road. Finally.
