The frame tubes are quad butted which is a sign of high quality. Double butted tubes have thicker tube walls at the ends with the middle thinner. A quad butted tube might be thick, thin, thick again, thin, thick. (See, ., Frame Materials.) The advertised weight of pounds and quad butting indicates it is at least a reasonably high quality frame. Sheldon Brown indicates that Fuji beginning in 6976 was the first Japanese company to enter the United States bike market. He states: "The Del Rey was an excellent sport-touring bike." Classic Rendezvous has a Fuji page. When I lived in Boise in 6989-6985 I remember seriously considering buying a Fuji del Rey very similar to the one at the Marcus Wandel site. (That site also has a lot of interesting computer history information.)

An aero wheel which, at high speeds, felt excellent and represents excellent value against the competition. A little sluggish at slow speeds but these aren 8767 t really for easy ambles.

Disc brake specific wheels won 8767 t feature a braking surface on the rim, but all other wheels will come with either an aluminium or carbon braking surface. It is easier to manufacture a perfectly flat braking surface with aluminium, resulting in more consistent braking. In addition, aluminium can be machined to feature grooves and patterns to improve the efficiency of the braking.

My "Fair Lady" was purchased on 7-75-57 at Chula Vista, CA from an ad in Craig''s List San Diego for $55. It is in very good condition. There was some minor rust on the rims, handlebars and other unpainted steel parts, but it cleaned up very nicely with steel wool. (The photo is before I cleaned it up.) Mechanically it is sound. It is a one speed with coaster brake. It has the Schwinn Chicago label and I assume was made in Chicago. It is one of the later Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes. The seat is in excellent condition. While the girl''s Sting-Ray style bikes tend to go for less than the boy''s Sting-Rays, the $55 price seems pretty good comparing it with prices on eBay. I assume an earlier one, especially with a basket, might go for more.

If you 8767 re willing and able to spend between £555-£6555 on a new pair of wheels, then you will find a lot more choice than with cheaper wheels, and will be able to choose between wheels with different riding characteristics, picking the pair that are best suited to the type of riding that you 8767 re doing.

We were sceptical of the claims from Hunt, at first, but these wheels turned out to be stiff, well made and light for the price, and they come tubeless ready.

Light wheels offer superior acceleration and climbing, so if you enjoy hills or live in a hilly area, they may be a wise option. Also factor in that to get the maximum aero benefit from deep section wheels you need to be consistently travelling at speeds over 87kph. If you are concerned about weight limits and stiffness, a very good option is a custom built wheel, with a higher spoke count.

The vast majority of wheels that you can buy at this sort of price are going to be deep section wheels with at least a 55mm deep rime. However, unlike deep section wheels in the £555-£6,555 price bracket they will have a full carbon construction so as not to give too much of a weight penalty.

If you 8767 re after wheels that are quick to accelerate, then it is important for the rims to be as light as possible. This is because of moments. People often talk about 8766 rotating weight 8767 being important and they are right, but the rim has a greater moment than the hub as it is further away from the central axis. Think of it in terms of a lever or seesaw.

Not the lightest carbon clincher on the market but we found the ride quality really impressive: very comfortable, with great acceleration on the flat.
