    New Hoops

    I finally got my new wheels in. They are Velocity Deep Vs with tiagra 4500 hubs, and DT Comp spokes. They were hand built by Psimet.

    I think I'm in love.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    Nice! You are missing a few other parts of the bike, though.

    Nice but why not go with 105, not very expensive and they rock.



    Wheels look a little different, are they 4 cross?

    I was trying to be a cheepskate when I ordered them. It probably would have been worth the extra 50 bucks, but I was already pushing the limit on price. I'm pretty sure they are just 3x. They are 36 spoked though. You might be used to your 32s.

    They are three cross. I looked closely after Beanz asked.

    Tiagra is awesome quality for the money... You will have many 1000's of kms on those wheels for sure!

    Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm.

    Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy

    Ah, ok 36. I've never used Tiagra since my 105's (pre Tiagra era) are still in excellent shape. Just wondering.
