It's My Birthday Today!!!

Well, as the title suggests, it is my birthday today and that means that I will be getting myself some bike stuff sometime soon. since I flattened my rear rim, i was thinking of getting a new rear wheel.
I really like the halo sas wheel, just because it is white and looks awesome. heres the link
http://www.halorims.com/HaloNew/saswheels.htm
that link isnt so good, theres another below
http://www.unrealcycles.com/item.php?view=153
has anybody used these or heard anything about them?
are these single wall or what?
any alternatives?
thanks in advance.

Tsk tsk, Psytrance and Melodic Trance are the way to go.

EDIT: I'll leave it at that though, I don't want to spoil his B-day thread.

Yup, thats all I ask for these days. It's a little harder shopping for a teenager for a b-day or for Christmas than it was when you were young. That and I'm afraid if I tell my mom I want something for my bike, she will go out and buy the wrong one Money and gift cards are the way to go.

Yeah I know what you mean. A few Christmas's ago, I told my mom what brakes I wanted (BB7's) and where to get them. A few days later she asks me, "There's cheaper brakes on that site, why do you need the expensive ones?"
