    Used B43's for $200 - What should i do?

    I know this is a good deal, but here is the deal, i can afford it, but don't think i really need them. Is this price too good to pass up? If it is that much of a steal, i will buy them.

    They have only been used for 2 months

    If you haven't got a set of wheels for your new build, 200 bones for some B-43s is a good deal to me.

    Well, they are currently on the Obey that I am going to test ride this weekend. But im sorta torn on whether or not i should just go with the Stock Obey with new hubs for $550, or the Obey with the B43's for $700.

    I forgot the price as well; decent formula laced sets are around $205 - $225 new @ velomine...

    damn guys.
    i can see exactly why all these photo threads exist.

    ok, so lets say i purchase a new wheelset later, are they all a standard size?

    meaning, how do i know that a certain wheelset will fit on my frame. Or when we are discussing FG/SS bicycles, do all wheelsets normally have the same wheel size.

    for example: if i blindly order a set of B43's online, will they fit?

    All modern road/fixed gear wheels are all 700c, if they are different size, dealer would most likely label it.
    Your wheels are going to fit perfectly into your frame.

    I wonder why those wheels use 16mm nipples when 12mm would work fine...
    maybe the machine scratches the rim when using 12mm?


    oh well.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
