    QUOTE].
    Now the problem starts for the rest of us. What hubs/spokes/ rims are you going to use and what style of riding, on what bike and how aggressive. [/QUOTE]



    This shall be my 5th wheelset build. The new wheels will be constructed by using 32 double butted
    (14-15-14) Sapim spokes to lace Velocity Fusion rims to Ultegra hubs in 3 cross pattern. The wheels shall be mounted on my Specialized Allez Comp Triple for recreational cycling on relatively smooth paved roads/paths within the flat Oklahoma City area topography. I am 61 years old and recovering from recent (October 06) triple bypass (CABG x 3) surgery, so remaining upright will be "aggresive"..

    I've found that given enough patience most people come through for you. I probably wouldn't go to them again because of the communications issues but still would expect my wheels.

    And you CAN cancel the credit card debt after a 30 day delay from their expected delivery date.

    It's EXTREMELY difficult to beat these wheels.

    Superspokes is going out of business:
    Credibility of Internet Wheelbuilders. Be Very Careful!
