Jammed Up Cannondale Track


I gave the trusty ol’ Cannondale Track some new, but old bombproof wheels… H Plus Son Archetype hoops laced with DT Swiss Super Comp spokes to LF Phil Wood Track hubs. I had these wheels built up years ago, but sat in my wheel bags with no movement.

Since the mounting hardware on the Phil Woods Track hubs are smaller in diameter, the front hub sat deeper in the dropouts causing my Conti Grand Prix 4000s II tire (700 x 23c) to get jammed up hard in the crown. My front wheel would not budge. I quickly remedied this issue by running a Conti Grand Prix Attack tire (700 x 22c) tire which I have to admit… is one helluva amazing tire.
