The impetus for this is: my birthday's coming up soon, and if I don't sort of indicate something I want to my parents, I'm going to end up with another Cuisinart. Really, the only thing I can think of is a nice new fixed wheelset, as I've been riding on a cheap Suzue Basic/Weinmann setup that I got off of Craigslist early in the season. I haven't had any problems at all with this rig, but...yknow, I might, and the birthday comes but once a year.
I'd like to buy something already built up, in the interest of having it while the weather's still nice, so I'm wondering what people have bought from Yojimbo's/Boulevard/Uptown/whatever, or if they've comissioned stuff, how long it's taken and at what price, and how well it's suited for our pavement and weather.
I don't ride on a track, just around the city, and I'd prefer a fixed/fixed hub rather than a flipflop, but that's not a big deal. I can't justify Phils. Pricewise/what I'm looking for, I like the $319 Suzue ProMax/Mavic Open Pro set on Harris Cyclery's site. Does this seem like a good price to you folks?
