- The usually metal rods that run between the wheel hubs and rims. Spokes come in different shapes, materials, thicknesses and lengths.
- Each of the metal rods in an umbrella to which the material is attached

Airborne Zeppelin Fixie Track
I did some changes in the Airborne Zeppelin (new fork with 1” steerer), the head tube size is for a 1 1/8 fork, bottom bracket, headset and the new wheel. It is very light with all titanium parts. For those that want to know, the specs are below: Specs: Fork – Alpha Q carbon / titanium steerer + head tube reducers to1” Headset – vintage Zeus Pista 1” and titanium spacers (similar to Campy Pista) Stem – Litespeed titanium quill 1” 120mm Handlebar –chop'n'flop 3T drop bar Bar tape – Brooks leather tape Brakes – Chorus 2005 (NOS) Brake levers – Salsa Cross Levers Crankset – Chorus ’93, looks like Record Pista Chainring/Cog – Gebhardt 44T / Eno 18T (3/32”) Bottom Bracket – Syncros Titanium 103mm Chain – KMC Z610 (3/32”) Hubs – Front: Record Titanium & SRP titanium skewer ; Rear: Eno Eccentric (flip/flop) Wheels – Mavic Open CD Ceramic Spokes: DT butted Tires – Bontrager Race Lite 700x25 Seatpost – vintage Chorus titanium 27.2 Saddle – Brooks Professional Pedals – vintage Suntour Superbe Pro + Campagnolo Straps
Vintage Cannondale SR500
I purchased this bike new in 1987. It hasn't been ridden in several years and is in need of cleaning and a bit of restoration work, which I plan on doing over the Winter. The bike came with the original Shimano 105 group with indexed rear shifting. It also came with a Biopace crankset (anyone remember those?) which I got rid of in favor of a Shimano 52-42. Those are Time Sport pedals. The bar and stem are Cinelli's which I added and the seat is a Selle Italia with titanium rails. The wheels are Wolber Super Champion Alpines, gray anodized with 105 hubs and double-butted stainless steel spokes. Those tires are Continental 700x25c clinchers, which would probably explode if I pumped them up! In the background can be seen my wife's Cannondale SM400 MTB, also a 1987 vintage bike, which was purchased new, also. It has 24" wheels, as she is petite.
