    NYCbikes, anyone ride one?

    In my hunt for parts I came across NYCbikes web site. They look like they have several decent bikes that would be good for clydes. So I just figured I'd ask if anyone has one or has any experience with them. I am not in the market right now for a new bike, but I like to know the options out there in advance. They have a set of wheels I was looking at...

    Would those be a decent set for some one 300 lbs? Is that a good price for those?

    Thanks for the input.

    hmm, no experience here with them but the $159 price tag seems reasonable for the set. I know guys that spend twice that on a single wheel.

    NYCBikes has a decent eBay rating last I've seen, but you should look that up for yourself - if they still have an eBay store.

    I have ordered things from them and shipping is a little slower than optimal, but still not bad.

    They also have - or used to - limited edition gold colored Deore LX stuff.

    Good luck - I would buy from them again if I needed to.
