So I managed to total my front wheel, and parts of my face, due to general ineptitude mainly. I now need to relace my surly hub to a new rim. I'm probably going to go with velocity, as they are all the rage in australia and hence available. I'll seek an open pro maybe, but I'm likely stuck with velocity. Obviously every fixed speed rider and his dog rocks some deep v's, but they they are tough as I understand it, and riding a steamroller I'm not super conscious of 100g extra... anti aero aesthetics aside why do people prefer fusions and aeroheads? or is it simply not wanting to be another deep v rider?
secondly, radial on a surly hub, yes? no? dangerous? I know it's not covered by waranty, but does that imply it is unsafe? I won't lie, I just think it looks badass, so I won't risk my safety for it.
and finally, I'm scouring the net for pics of deep v colours, or just velocity colours I guess as they seem to be expanding them out across the other rims, especially with the maroon (which is growing on me) steamroller.. anyone got a maroon steamroller + deep v combo they are particularly proud of? or just some pics that accurately show the colour of rims like gold and ti grey?
