When I was young the coolest bikes rolled tubulars. Now this retro push for super high end wood rims. I've seen the pics on the web, but just wondered if someone has tried to build up a set with purchased rims. How about the super shop guys, the guys that can build a frame from scratch. Has anyone heard of someone who made a set at home. I look at the adds and pictures and see a piece of wood for 200.$ Think I could roll strips of Bass wood on a 24" rim with glue and sand it to shape. How about the lucky person who rides these wonders of yore, tell us how they ride. Do they reduce vibration? Are they aero? In all seriousness, I wan't a pair. I'm just cheap. I would love to be a cheap bike snob on a set of wood rims.
