    Wheelset Question

    Im building a bike up for my lady friend. She just wants a bike for riding around with her friends and occasionaly riding to work so im not putting a whole lot of money into it. Anyone have any experience with any of the low end sealed bearing hub wheelsets(alex deep v's with formuals is what i have seen alot of for cheap.) I mean I know you get what you pay for but I dont know if they would suit her ok. I dont want her to have somethign she is going to have to be messing with so i definitly want sealed. i might go with the suzue sealed promax's with some lower end but sturdy rims if i dont get any good info for anything cheaper. thanks.

    formula hubs are great and should work fine for your case.

    sweet. thanks. i don t think there is much a sub 100 lb girl can do to a hub. the only thorough reviews i have have seen have been for their mtb hubs and they were all horrid.

    I just saw my first built Pista (ooo) and was amazed at the smoothness of the hubs. Cheap need not equal suck anymore.
