    Invest in a good lock if you commute with it a lot.

    I tried it with 700x23 Rubino Pro, but the tire wasn't even wide enough to match the rim width. Was constantly afraid of denting a rim.

    Hmm...thanks for the input though.

    I have a chance to pick up set set of them for a good price and I want to have a nice set of box-section wheels. Though it won't be much of an upgrade from my DA22, the CR-18s are at least single eyeleted.

    Buy these wheels for my 721 build or order some Foer's from Scrod and build 'em up myself? The Mavic's would be cheaper but Foer's are rad.

    Yup, that's what I'm getting. I just needed somebody to reinforce it.

    I rode a 23c tire on a CR18 for about five months with no problems.

    I updated with a pic. The condition looks to be used/not abused. I'll ask about the length of the BB.

    should I...

    build up a leader 725, cinelli mash, bianchi super pista?

    I actually had TFB pricematch approve the CG sale of $750 on the Mash, but when I went back to the site after it was approved it said "Item is discontinued and is no longer available" Easy to approve a price if you no longer sell something I suppose.

    Yea. I don't mind used cranks at all. Adding a decent chainring, chainring bolts, and crank bolts will probably bring the total closer to $130-$150.

    The other choice I had for my build was black Omniums, but those are super hard to find. Scrod's price is pretty good at $195ish shipped. Even then, though, the worst case price difference between the new Omniums and used Sugino 75s is still $45.

    Hence my indecisiveness.

    it would come down to what color I wanted in that case. After you add a chainring you'll save money but not a ton of it, I would get the color and cranks you like more if we're talking <$50

    $50 is a lot to pay for color. I would pay $10 max for color, but that's just me. Plus, after seeing cc700's FTP, I think silver would actually look ok on the FTP.

    I'm more concerned about the used-ness, I guess.

    go with the omniums ... what's 50 bucks? Plus Scrod price is excellent all things considered. when the BB goes the GXP BB is super cheap and the chain rings are reasonable.

    Bunch of should-i's:

    Should I sell the used Dura-Ace 7710 crankset w/bb (got it for $200), profit, and get something cheaper (i.e. omniums) or just run them on my new Soma rush build?

    Should I build up my Soma rush and then sell the Mark V or have it do duty as a singlespeeder?

    Should I use the IRO wheelset on the Soma rush or get the Wabi wheelset (or something else)?

    Should I get 28c or 25c Panaracer T-servs? I weight about 160lbs.
