    The wheelset was made with DT Swiss spokes and Deore disc hubs and came out to just shy of 400 bucks.

    On that same day, I also bought a Trek 7100 Multitrack for $309.00 plus tax for my girlfriend. The funny thing is what she said afterward: "You paid more for the two rims then you did for a whole bike? They saw you coming!" I just kissed her on the forehead and smiled.

    Thanks. The boat is a 1978 Silverton Sedan with a Chevy 454 cubic inch engine. It is 28 feet long and has a bathroom with a shower and a kitchenette/dining area. It sleeps four very comfortable like. It also hold 100 gallons of gas (and can burn 18 gallons an hour if you push it). I can drive it from inside or upstairs.

    I take it up the Hudson River sometimes (right past the Statue of Liberty) and out into the Atlantic Ocean (when I bring friends with gas money). More times then not, we leave it tied up at the dock and cook on it, drink on it, watch TV on it and sleep on it.

    The cool thing about it is: it's docked 5 miles from my apartment, and being on it, you dont even know you are in the city. It is almost like trailer camping, or like a summer cottage that rocks gently.
