keep your chin up the calendar says that it's ok to ride your bike to work today and you may ask yourself   what would Dirty Randy do?

one thing he probably wouldn't do is take a set of Mad Fiber wheels and slap a spacer on the freehub body to rock a 7-speed casette with a 6-speed thumbie frictioned-out and commute those wheels day in and day out into the ground one set of cork brake pads at a time returning them to earth unceremoniously

but that's what I would do if I had a set or two of Mad Fiber wheels just sitting around collecting dust

I'll second that. RIP Jobst. A curmudgeons curmudgeon. Much respect.

P.S. I dig the idea of the retro drive train with the high end wheel set. That's the kind of irreverent juxtaposition that I can appreciate.

Randy would probably stack a bunch of spacers on them and run them as a singlespeed set up...and still drop me like the fat old man that I am. RIP Jobst
