Steel or alloy rims?
as a long term user and owner of the Worksman brand I'll share this with you about rims.
The steel rims are nice and very strong on all Workman's BUT the chrome is just a thin coating that rusts VERY quickly
. The allow rims will all come with stainless steel spokes so the whole alloy wheel package is a good investment to avoid any rusting.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
