    Hey guys

    Have any of you guys ever used a mono-blade (single sided fork) set up?

    I have one on my TT bike see www.sponsorstu.com and click oon trick kit, this one is made by Mike
    Burrows (aero guru). He also makes em for recumbents, you guys will get far more benefit from these
    than me as you travel so much faster. Well worth looking at.

  2. My shockproof has one. It looks cool and has less drag. But it is heavier and harder to work on
    (since it slides left, you must loosen the brake calipers). The spokes are also straight pull and
    an odd size.

    As I said, it looks cool.

    Since I was not aware that the wheelchair hubs were available threaded, I had assumed they all were.
    Could be I was wrong.

    Hard to make money without making compromises. Shean wasn't one for shortcuts or 2nd best.
