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)

28-hole Silver Mavic Open Pros = MIA?

hey folks,

just wondering if any of you had any tips on where to find silver 28-hole Open Pros for my future front wheel. i've spent a long time scouring the web with no luck and can only find the 28's in black.

i guess I could settle for a 32 hole, or black, but if i'm spending this much money, i'd like to find what I want. i think a 28/36 OP combo would be a great wheelset.

many thanks in advance,
alheim

$80 for a open pro is a lot of money? What?

it's all relative - for me, it is kind-of a lot of money. also buy hubs. plus, i wasn't referring to only the wheelset, i'm talking about the whole bike - i want the whole bike to be what i have carefully thought out and planned on.

baxtefer, thanks a lot my friend.

you really are a Cornucopia of Awesomeness.

did you find that by searching, or did you just know that prowheelbuilder.com was a good site? if you find it by searching, i need to know what search terms you used.

thanks again
