nice assertion, idk track skewers were a thing!?

dietrootbeer says:

Some companies just call them bolt on/anti-theft skewers. Zipp sells a front only and calls it a track skewer. More secure than a quick release I suppose? Definitely wouldn't trust one on the rear though hah

you and me both! and thank you! the downtube decals are generally used on Yamaguchi's tandem builds (with larger tubes) but I was able to score some thankfully. I think they look a lot nicer than the smaller ones

much appreciated, the original color I wanted wasn't doable (his original painter was diagnosed with MS several years ago) so this was a very close second!

Yamaguchis home is in Rifle CO so it makes sense. They found this jersey in a box in storage and offered it to me for next to nothing. Won't have it until my frame gets here though!

yah those are super nice. I already have the zipp front though and want them to match. I have a Zipp rear on the way that needs some love but hopefully it works for me.
