Now you guys are getting tough! Believe it or not, I still had one wood rim wheel left that I was using. Its a small flange I think BSA tied and soldered Fairbanks / Boston V shape rim. Sorry, don't have it anymore and can't remember where it rollled off to. The bandage came from a previous race when I went over the stem after several riders went down in front of me. The gash in my inner thigh was big enough to put a fried egg yolk in and to this day the triangular scar and small tissue around it has no nerve feeling. All in day's riding, not that big a deal actually. Ted Ernst Palos Verdes Estates, CA
