I iwsh I could get those beauties, but where did you get the Hoshi spokes?
they came with the wheels, i got them from a nearby velodrome. they are really beautiful spokes, my favorite part of the wheels. they are super hard to find though.

Those are cool wheels and if theyve been taken care of the hubs will be super smooth.
I thought this thread was going to be about the $140 formula/straght gauge dt/reflex wheels. An amazing deal if anyone needs training wheels.

Those wheels would be great for racing, too. Few people need carbon wheels for the level of competition that we're discussing on here.
