Mike Wood replied to Brian Bressler's discussion Asylum Meuse - Di2 Hack with Hydraulic Brakes
"This is great! Love it. I've looked into the Di2 1x10 option a lot and I have the Hylex brakes, BEER eccentric BB so can easily swap from geared to SS. Instead I went with an XT 11-36 cassette, Zee RD, MTB thumb shifter (to be replaced with…"

Mike Wood replied to Dugafola's discussion Recommend me an air compressor
"Talking of... I have a shop compressor in the garage and a 5 gal air tank and was thinking of bringing it to races since my generator is too large to fit in the car. 5 gal @ 150psi should be enough for a few tire changes I would think. I guess I…"

Mike Wood replied to Mike Wood's discussion Grail rims (or stick with Iron Cross)
"Oh cool! Thanks! I am using the Comp Iron Cross and would get the Team Grail so looks like for both wheels the weight penalty is only 50G or so. I'll check with my LBS about the availability for each but I think I'll go with the Grail for…"

Bob Nunnink replied to Mike Wood's discussion Grail rims (or stick with Iron Cross)
"Iron Cross is lighter 385g then Grail 460g and cannot be used above 50 psi. Road tubeless does not work on Iron Cross. Grail has a more aero shape and will work tubeless both with cross and road tubeless tires.  I use Iron Cross as my main CX…"

Grail rims (or stick with Iron Cross)

Looking for a second set of wheels and have been very happy with my Iron Cross & Raven tires (norcal dryness). Even ran them at 16.5psi (I am 168lb) for a practice session when I let too much air out.Anyways, I could just buy Iron Cross but the Grail sounds interesting and might be useful for using on gravel rides - although I normally have used my road bike with 25c tubeless on the mixed races (Grasshoppers) with success. On more gravel I would prolly need to use the cross bike but…See More

"I have a Belgium+ setup tubeless for my road/adventure bike with many miles on the dirt done. It's a 32 spoke and once I'd had it re-tightened (Competitive Cyclist build around a Powertap G3 hub got real loose non-drive-side with just a…"

Mike Wood replied to Bryan Gast's discussion Mix n match
"I am in the same process. Putting 11-36 SRAM cassette on my single-speed as a gravel ride option. I got a Shimano Zee RD - really compact and sturdy but is dyna-sys (10spd MTB ratio). Since I don't have STI levers (I have Hylex hydraulic levers…"

"Know it's a done deal but throwin' in my $0.02.  Stans Iron Cross (brand new from Performance Bike(!!) $529 - 20% sale). Stans Ravens ($51x2). Total: $525. Ran 27-30psi 175# rider. Not one problem. Pretty much all bumpy hard-pack…"

"Some similar parameters. I weigh 175 and have run Ravens on Iron Cross rims at 27psi for a few races without issue (in Norcal). There was a long mud pit last race as well as a lot of grass and the Ravens actually were fine. Surprising for not having…"

Mike Wood replied to Paul's discussion Few build questions: TRP Hylex? 1x10? Wheels?
"It would be cool to try. Prolly right about the extra force of a clutch RD being too much for it.  Still thinking about Di2 for my Hylex: RD - $220 sacrificial rear brifter ($120 ebay) DIY buttons (~$20) battery ($100 or $40 DIY) cables…"
