Picked up some new wheels and tubes!

I am so stoked! I went to the LBS today to pick up a few things. Tools, etc. I ended up walking away spending more than planned but it was pretty sweet. I got a new wheelset. Shimano Deore LX hubs laced up to Mavic double wall rims (can't remember the model). They're going to retension the wheels and touch them up on the truing stand for me. I explained that I wanted to buy from them rather than online, but that supergo had Deore/RhinoLite's for $100. The only ones they had that were similar were $170. BIG difference. I asked them if I bought them, if they'd throw in the BB service that I needed. They said they would. SO, I bought them. I also bought some thorn resistant tubes and had them put slime in them.

I can't wait to ride on them

Just had to share my excitement!!

slime is the absolute most disgusting thing in the world. sorry but you or the person who fixes your flats is really going to hate you(rself) for that later.
