    You should run brakeless/4 pegs on the 'street' bike if you're going to call it that.

    Iron cross pedals are pigs.

    I'd personally get a Shadow Rant to a Sun Big City, 48 spokes, all black. The profile should be pretty good though.

    Pretty good... I'm sure the profile is probably better than the rant. Although I do want the Shadow, but mainly because I can't afford a Profile. Why Sun Big City? Gotta go with Odyssey rims, or the ribcage... maybe the new Primo's.

    The internal design that the Rant uses is more strong, and also loud, than the other current designs as far as I know. I wouldn't mind an Odyssey Hazard.. if I was buying a wheel I wouldn't go with light stuff, 27-30lb for a total bike is good IMO. The Ribcage looks good, but I heard it can be hard to get tires on, and it's pretty expensive.
