    130 bux seems like a good deal for weinmann's tho

    oh but like gobby said, a step down from velocitys. they arn't bad though for a commuter/street track build.

    If that's your budget, the Weinmann or rebranded Eighthinch version is a tough value to beat.

    I've done better.
    DP18 and novatec/joytech hub wheelset for $70 + $40 S&H.
    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. ;)

    Higher quality rims at very comparable price. Unless you are picky about colors I would advise getting these instead.
