This is my first post here, so please forgive me if I take any wrong turns.
Hereís what I got for you: Iím looking into buying a Havnoonian (southeastern PA bike manufacturer) steel tack bike at about the 1k price range. I have no doubt that the frame is top quality, but I canít find much reliable info about the bikeís accoutrements, the wheels in particular. Their hand built with mavic MA2 rims, DT SS 14g spokes, and suzui hubs. At this price range I want to be relatively sure that the wheels will be pretty responsive (read stiff/fast/snappy/quick) and durable, as I hope to use this bike for commuting, training, and general mischief. I would be grateful for some opinions and some feedback, especially regarding the hubs, and whether or not they will hold up to the city streets.
Also, it has a shimano rsx crank arm. Can anyone recommend a better one at a nice price?
