Wheels have arrived and are on the bike!

Since pics or it didn't happen...


the green with the black...


I still am planning to put new tires on since these are 700x23 and I want to go with a more clyde friendly 700x25. I'm also going to either swap out the bar tape for the same color green, black, or the black/green multi color, or possibly double wrap these... Then, and since it's primarily an appearance thing, I will probably go with the team green speedplay zeros in chromoly...

Yellow bar tape would go well with that or maybe I've been around tractors too long.

I second the DSP tape. I have it on my monstercross bike, and it is super comfortable. A little pricey, but worth the extra money.
