I'm setting out to join the ranks of the elite and contribute to the pinnacle of cycling.
I got a vintage italian road bike that I want to strip down into a fixie. I thought I might share witih you
the bike before the mods and in a month or so, give you a showing of the bike in its ultimate state.
Outfitted with mostly Italian parts: Ofmega Crank/BB/Pedals, Campy Record fr/rear der'l, Mavic MA40 rims, Miche fr/rear hubs, 85mm 3ttt stem, Cinelli Campione Del Mondo 66-38 handlebars, shimano 600 aero brake levers, universal mod77 fr/rear caliper brakes, Benotto headset/seatpost. San Selle Marco Apside saddle, and I forgot the make of the tires.
I've been looking at good fixie wheelsets to start off and I see a lot of favorable responses to Mavic Open Pros and Velocity Aerohead (for aesthics and performance reasons). I've been eyeing this particular wheelset on ebay:
I was thinking of offering $160 for this. Do you think that's a reasonable price?
