Col de Corbier & Abondance

Today during Saturday's loop I had a real pleasure to cycle with "Blonay Bulldogs" club members.

Ride was really nice with decent climbing & descending planned with "German precision" thanks to Matthias

Weekend as usual

Building wheels makes me relax, while testing them gives a lot of adrenaline and I think the second part is a more pleasant part of the job.

The carbon wheels I mentioned few posts back are doing very well. It's over 1k. km on them and LOT of climbing and descending in a hot days. 

I felt very so confident with them that I pulled the trigger and ordered a bigger batch from the manufacturer. 
Soon I shall have them back on stock and ready for build(s).

Meantime, enjoy some photos from last two rides

Best aero/wide aluminum rims in the market?

Most of us are looking for similar things in terms of road wheels - stiffness, aero benefits, weight and recently width - wide rims became popular recent days...

During that weekend I was able to build two sets of wheels based on newest Kinlin XR-31T rims.

Spontaneous loop

I'm struggling with the flu since almost two weeks now. I can't get rid of it, maybe because I have no time to lay in the bed and simply take some rest. 

This week was pretty busy, several wheel-sets were finished and of course daily job in the corporation... blah...

Today, since the weather was good, I decided to go for small spin on flat, just to stretch the legs... well, that was the plan. Obviously that plan didn't work at all:

Back to the roots

From time to time it's good to step back and go back to the roots. Today I finished very traditional and beautiful wheelset composed from H plus Son Archetype rims and DT Swiss components.
