    I got my free wheels.... whooot whooot!

    First I want to thank W&SOS for having a great contest and also everyone who voted for me. These are the wheels from this thread Any one want to have a contest? Free Wheels?

    I received the wheels yesterday and quickly opened the box and began to inspect them. Everything was packaged well and the wheels needed no work. They were true and the hubs were right. I then removed my old wheels and brakes and then weighed both sets. I was going to loose 186 grams with these new wheels. She now weighs in at just over 27 pounds not bad for a semi stock 29er.

    I mounted everything and then installed them to see what they would look like. I like the new color however I now need some accent pieces to tie them together.

    Here are some pics.







    I wish I could test the wheels on the trails and give a ride report but that will have to wait. last weekend I got a little to crazy on a steep downhill and did a high speed endo/face plant and my tail bone is severely bruised. If you have ever messed up your tail bone you know the pain I am in and if you haven't well don't. the ride report with some outside pictures to come as soon as I can ride. Heck I might just take some extra vicadins and hit the trails anyways.
