    My new wheels!!

    Well as many of you know, I have been in the process of building up a new wheelset.

    477 dollars later I have my Phil Wood, black open pro wheelset on my bike!!!

    Yeah I am stoked, I will take pics once I get my camera back form HereNT...

    Anyway, time to go and test them out...


    Phil

    (P.S. Thanks all for the suggestion of radial lacing the front wheel, looks uber-sexy)

    BEEEEYOOOOOOTEEEFULLLLLLLLLL!!!!

    they look a lot like my wheels. but i don't have the CD open pros...i just have black ones. and my rear is fixed/free...with nothing on the free side...most pointless purchase made by me ever.

    Scha-weet! They're enough to make a Quaker jealous. The black spokes are a nice detail. I didn't catch if you laced these up yourself or farmed 'em out.

    Well they ride AWESOME...

    I was actually surprised how light they were, I wasn't actually expecting them be so light, considering I was building them for solidity and durability. When I lift the front wheel off that ground and spin it, the wheel seems to spin forever, usually I get bored first.
    I recommend to everyone to get set like em, you won't be dissapointed (surprising eh?)

    I think I spend 30+ extra for the black spokes, I don't really know... It was purely for looks though, that is all..

    That's not that orange Miyata is it? I hope you didn't paint that. I loved the orange bike.

    K. Don't worry that isn't the Miyata...

    It is the Kuwahara...

    Here is a picture of the two of them making out...

    Notice the new yellow tires on the Miyata, I don't blame the Kuwahara for wanting to make out with her.. heck, I almost have...
