First I'm new to old bikes. I know there's a lot of comments on this board against older steel rims, namely braking and wet weather fun! But what if you have an original wheelset as I do that just polished up like new and just looks great with new Michelin World Tour gumwalls. I'm only gonna ride this bike in dry weather through my own neighborhood just because it's a nice steel retro feel. I think the polished wheels add something to it?
Anyone else out there have well preserved steel rims they choose to ride, and if so what are the benefits of them?
