    anyone tried Campy Pista wheelset on the street?

    Mighty fine looking deep section tubular track wheelset... anyone tried trashing these on the street? I might get these for my 'good sunday cruising' fixie

    I got nothing to do
    you got nothing to say
    everything is so ****ed up
    I guess it's natural that way

    No, but they look sweet and, after all, they are Campy. Mavic has a new track wheelset that looks swank, too...straight pull bladed spokes and fixed/fixed hub. Here's a link and a pic:

    I don't run a Campy rim, but do have a Record track hub on one of the commuters.
    It doesn't shine as nice as the Dura Ace hubs on two of the other bikes.
    "We are few now, but one day we will rule." That's what one of my fixies whispered as I walked by. I nodded in agreement, and thanked it for not waking the others.

    I don't think they are available under the Shamal name as rims alone (short of damage replacement). Rather I think they go by Atlanta. As such, the Atlanta's are available in 32 hole if the urge hits.
