    picture request, open pro's

    i'm debating weather or not open pros are too thin for my bike. i can't find any pictures of them on any aluminum bikes (with phat tubes). maybe theres a reason for that... anyone have a picture?

    while they do look thin compared to fat tubes, they keep the bike lighter. I didn't mind too much when I had the bike

    While they can look a little funny, they also are good at smoothing out the harshness that can happen with a fat-tubed aluminum frame. Wheels are one of the biggest determining factors for how 'harsh' or 'smooth' a frame will ride (next to tire pressure and tubing diameter).

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I'm into these IRD Cadences/Nio19/KinLin XR 200's lately.

    2006 Toyota United Done Right (56K Warning) for pics.

    They kind of look like a cross between Open Pros and Aeroheads, weigh 390g and are supposed to build up to a very nice wheel as long as you use atleast 32 spokes.
