Looks like a great deal if you just want to convert bikes to SS/FG for flipping to hipsters for profit.

Me, I'd prefer a little better for my personal riding.

I think this is a better deal because the parts are of higher quality and the shipping is very reasonable. I have a set and I'm very happy with them.

They even give you rim tapes.

The wheels are shipped one to a box, so they don't get beat up in transit.
