INTRO & BACKGROUND (so if you wanna answer just the rims lol read further down)
hello all, ive been reading up in this section and joined the forum today. im new to biking in general, i jumped on some trails and built a mtb from an old frame a friend gave me. im hooked! started riding in town with some guys on the road, and my old mtb was no good for asphault, so i picked up a 2011 Dawes Revolver from 'chicabike' on ebay. I enjoy riding it SS over fixed, for now, as I'm riding distance with a group. I've already noticed a few components on the bike being pretty cheap, but am still extremely happy with the purchase as the bikes are very very smooth riding! anyways, ive already ordered a new crankset, pedals, shimano freewheel, and a quick release skewer and axle-bolt for the front (so i can put the bike on my mounts in truck bed for travel). though im not riding the bike fixed, i really dig big color schemes on all my bikes, and fixed guys always have awesome color schemes ha!
anyways, im wanting some green wheels and saw these on ebay, but wanted to see if anyone had any negative info on them...
I like the big sidewalls of the rims, not exactly sure of the name of that style. Any pros/cons to running a large sided rim like that over smaller ones? I'm looking for rims that are not neon-green, which most I find seem to be. And I'm kinda on a low budget, so that's why I'm asking for these. Really just wanting to ride and colored rims arent a necessity, but I have a strange problem with not being able to leave anything like it came or oem lol
Any input and help is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to reading up on more info from everyone's posts! Thanks!
