I ride Ulterga casettes because Dura-Ace is too expensive;). I have 2 different chainrings. the 39 is a TA Specialites and the 46 is a Trutativ. My 39 trutrativ was broken so I bought a TA and they look and ride super!

I use the brakes of the homebrand of Van Tuyl. They called radius and look like the same as Spookies. Spookies are better I guess but the price of mine are 30 euro's!

i ride most of the races with 32 mm, because i can ride a little less pressure with them than with 30 mm. 30 mm would be good on courses that are fast and hard without too much bumps in the field. now that i don't have too much wheels because most of my wheels are campa and i couldn't change them, i don't have 30 mm tubes, just 32 mm and some special ones like michelin, rhino 32 mm, diamant and some new profiles for super hell muddy conditions(have to take a pic once). i think for me it's better using the wheels i have for special tubes/profiles than for 32 mm and 30 mm, because the difference there is not very big.
