    I know what the LBS's pay for stuff... That's why I don't buy it there, unless my life depends on it (and even then I'll think about it....)


    BTW. Nice wheelset & brakes, Troie !!!!

    I just simply love Sun-Ringle rims and wheels. Those look great! I'm also looking forwards to the upcoming review.

    nice wheelset! i have the same build but all in silver . tough, tough, wheels (if built up right of course).

    getting new gear is always fun. hope you enjoy your new parts. i'm waiting on some new tires i ordered... hopefully i get them before our planned ride this saturday. i'm going to finally put on the cranks/bb i bought a year or so ago too (its about time). so my bike's going to kinda feel a bit newer .
    current ride: 2003 norco vps fluid 3.0 (custom build).

    Ohhhhh, I thought I read somewhere that you were around 15 or something. lol because I was going to ask how you could save up that much money in a month but since you're 27...haha.

    What'd you pay for these bad boys?

    The wheelset and the front BB7 came to $190 shipped! Jenson has been doing alot for their customers lately, price comparisons, 10% off coupons. They have really good deals right now.

    Unfortunately I cant install them because my Reba SL (exchanged the Manipoo) is on backorder until the beginning of July . Its worth the wait because I got the Reba for $260! All in due time...
