if you just want it to look cool then why not, they're heavy, but they come in colours!!
bling>performance? ...you tell me.

i have deep v's they are great. very sturdy i cant complain. i know nothing about these wheels. they are significantly less. i know i have heard good things about wienmann(i think thats how its spelled) and they are hte same price range as hte vuelta and i have heard htey are just as good as velocity.

This thread looks so damn familiar. Those wheels are ****.

lol ok. so they suck. velocity it is then.
actually how do they compare to velocities? weight wise? i know the formula hubs are better but couldn't i just upgrade to phil bearings?

You can get Weinmann rims and Formula hubs for similar prices. Example:
I can't say that they are better than the Vuelta's, but Weinmann is at least a name brand. They don't mention who makes the rims in your wheelset. You'd have to add the cog and lockring to the $159 price. This is essentially what I bought for my son's fixie. Oh yeah, and the hub is f/f which may interest you - possibly more versatile, depending on what you're looking for.

lame. i waited to long and missed my chance on the velocities. i suppose i'll get the vueltas and report?
10-09-08, 10:11 PM
i rock the velocity fusions
i also have a pair of deep vs in yellow with black spokes
and a pair of velocity "dydo" i believe... maybe "dido"
i have too many sets of wheels.....
but yeah fusions are hot
