Very nice! It sure is satisfying to ride on your own wheels... I just built up a set using the nashbar hubs the other day, and they are quite satisfying. What brand of bearings did you upgrade too, and can you tell the difference?
My lucky score was a set of Serface Deca tires from the dumpster, 700Cx23mm with side strips colored a greyish green that exactly matches my frame.
The tires have obviously been ridden, but are far from worn out.
So far I've spend about 100$ on this wheelset, and I'm pretty friggen pleased with them.
PS. I want to see pics of your crazy pink action.
