    Exactly. You are in Georgia, I am in rural Georgia. I fail to understand the need, that to be a "man", one must have a pit bull chained up in the front yard. I mean, dogs are supposed to be "man's...

    I have no personal experience with Velomine but some of the picky folks in the SSFG forum give them high marks for making good wheels at a fair price.. I don't think I'd be afraid to give them a try.
