May the fork be with you
For a grandkid in US, who just recently moved there, getting ready for school in the fall, there was a form to fill out--one checkbox was yes/no if they had been in a 'dangerous' country in the last year, for TB. The form mentioned several countries as safe, but no mention of japan's status. So some discussion followed regarding how to answer, and whether a doc's assessment of that and signature was needed, etc.... wasn’t in a “dangerous” country ...
So far, I am actually really happy with the wheels. It lets me carve up turns with how stiff they are. I do get blown around a bit, so not for windy days - but I am happy with the wheels/tire combo. I am trying the Enve tires in a 29mm.So I reckon this is a thumbs up on the Enve 65s then?
Out of curiosity, why do you keep a framebag on the bike? Were you too lazy to take it off?
The 45 version of this wheelset was my preferred set. BUT - I had an "in stock" alert at several websites - when I got the email, I immediately would go to the site and they would already be sold out. After 4 months of waiting, I ultimately pulled the trigger on the 65s. They were just as elusive, but I lucked out and got a set.... ON SALE! So I ultimately paid $400 less than MSRP. Worth buying them to test out and sell if I don't like them. However... I very much like them. I m repurposing one of my gravel wheelsets to be my windy road wheels.Interesting. Curious that you mention that you get blown about by the wind. I’ve been curious about getting a second, deeper wheelset (in the distant future, like 2 years from now ), but it seems my 45s will serve me well.
If you're just borrowing the saddle, then that alone might (should?) deter you from making irreversible alterations to it; but anyway you should find this thread worth reading. I've inferred from a lot of his other messages on other subjects that "rhm" (third message) in particular really knows his stuff.another thing was it's too wide around the wings/ flaps, and toward the nose of the saddle. it rubs my inner thighs. I think I saw some other models with laces, which could perhaps address this issue by tightening things a bit. I'll give it another one or two rides, but I don't think this will work for me really. anyways, my "seatless" bike should arrive in about 10 days or so, so I hope I can leave all saddles behind me and never look back
