New Wheels

I just got an email from the builder -- my wheels are done. Deep V's, 105 hubs.

Can't wait -- but I'm out of town and 250+ miles away.

They must be all white cause they blend in too well with the white background! Can't see a thing other than a white box.

I like the white box better!...But if you really want them to last, have them retensioned after 300 miles or so. Not just retrued but retensioned. If the builder says they dont need it, it's your call to fall for it, but the life of them depend on it.

They told me to put a couple hundred on them and bring them back for tensioning.
