Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Trying to find a pair high pollished deep v's

Looking for a pair of high pollished velocity deep v's. Either a online store, or a lbs in nyc. The color seems pretty hard to find right now. Trackstar is all out, and nycbikes does not carry that color.

There was a Deep V thread on here a while back where the someone from Velocity USA said he would see about having some made, but couldn't promise anything. So..you won't find them.

which shop in oakland are you talking about? i looked around and found one in san leandro, i used to know of one near the fruitvale area, but its no longer where it used to be.

my non- machined silver 36's came in friday and i would like to drop them off this week for a project in the works.

since these days of the internet i had forgotten about the phone book,

i'm taking my rims over to universal polishing near fruitvale going to run me $30per with an option of doing the spokes for $1ea for that ultimate bling per their suggestion-

turn around 1-2 days...

i'll take better pictures in the light...


just have to decide on hubs now, probably going with polished phils but was leaning towards the promaxs' before i picked these up today.


forget that 1-2 day turn around i dropped my rims off @ noon and they were ready by close of business, and they do excellent work.
