Climbing Mt. Washington... 6000 feet in 7.6 miles.

I used a long cage modified DA derailleur. I added an extra-long b-tension screw to keep the derailleur cage from rubbing on the largest cog. It works perfectly.

I was mistaken... it's just under 5000 feet climbing over 7.6 miles, so average is just above 12%. But there are some really steep sections.

I'm considering parting out this bike. I cringe at the thought, but I have too many bikes and not enough money.

That would be like selling a puppy to a Korean barbecue.

I'd like to trade my THM Clavicula crankset (130 BCD) for a THM or similar compact (110 or 104 BCD) crankset. Bottom bracket has been upgraded to hybrid ceramic bearings. I'll also include a well used (but not abused) set of Fibre-Lyte Chainrings (52/38). I'd like another THM Clavicula, Lightning, or something similarly light weight in a 170mm length. Please contact me if you are interested in a trade.
