    Anyone else get colored Phil's from the latest batch?

    They actually make a $15 frame look nice.



    1 + 1 = 3 for 1 sufficiently large.

    pink phils and pink deep v's don't belong together. that said, that bike actually does look nice.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    I love my Phil hubs, but how can you live with locking up a $500 wheelset on a $15 frame and being away from it for any length of time?

    I'm sorry, but I disagree. It's like a bum wearing a top hat- I still know he's a bum. Nice hubs, though.

    At least, he has a great cornerstone for a bombproof bike in the future.

    How about spending money on a decent frame instead of super high end hubs?

    time for a new frame!!! i got to a point where i had about $400 worth of parts on a $15 frame and i felt like the guys rolling around with 20" spinners on an 85 buick.

    i'm thinking a good wheelset as the first purchase is not a bad way to go; it takes a while to find the right frame (unless you're going production), and in the meantime at least you can ride, and if you're not racing (or ocd ) the frame doesn't matter THAT much...

    all that aside, i'm not a fan of the phil pink/velocity pink combo myself, but that doesn't affect how they roll.

    Ah, I understand now.
    I didn't realize what that was in reference to.

    I think the pink on pink looks nice. It clashes with the frame, but who cares?

    dolface is right. Great wheels will make even a ****ty frame feel great.

    is it weird that the first thing I noticed was the purple rain stupor bowl 9 spoke card? Agree that the hub / rim combo is not close enough, but still hot none the less, I have that set up in all black and it is one da*n fine set of wheels

    OK dudes. Here's the justification. My first priority is to drop the $$ into the moving parts. (This bike will have a phil BB in a couple of days). I'd much rather have high end wheels and BB on a **** frame than the other way around.

    As far as the frame, I'm moving to Japan in a few months. Rather than taking an entire bike, I'll just take the wheels and BB and buy a frame and the rest of the stuff once I'm there. So many options for so much cheaper! I'm a bit worried about sizing, but with 120mm hubs and 113BB, these are hopefully somewhat standard? Maybe? If not, I guess I'll just toss the wheels and BB in the trash.

    Toestraps? What are those?
    Children? What are those?

    Red - Magenta - Pink makes a nice progression. I was pleasantly suprised how well they work. (Maybe the photo doesn't do justice)
    1 + 1 = 3 for 1 sufficiently large.

    Can I worry less if they're locked to a $500 frame?

    I worry to some extent, but it's covered under renters insurance.

    i like the wheels - pink & pink looks good.

    you're smart on upgrading the wheels first.

    hey, just a thought..the phil bb is really amazing, but alot of the time when you get a frame there is a bb in it (and in japan a high quality one)......maybe get crank arms first? if you get the phil bb get a 108mm, it works better with track crank arms that you will probably one day have (they should probably be bought at the same time)
