Make sure you use as many different color nipples as you can find, maybe some various colored spokes (at least silver and black if that's all you can get) and some non-matching Velocity Deep V rims (or some other rim that comes in many different colors). Then of course, different-colored tires.

Sure. You can count on me to not take comprimising photographs, since my camera is way too big to use for quick snapshots, and I just ordered stuff to make it bigger.

I don't want to have Jon there. Besides - he'd take pics of me upside down on my back spinning around like a turtle trying to get up and them post them here.
Clipless isn't that bad. I've never had a bad fall caused by my clipless pedals...never!

Of course, rainbow nipples. If I get a whole wheel built, why not?

Advantage of some 32-hole CK hubs laced to Deep Vs is that the resulting wheels are going to be pretty much bomb-proof. Good for wheelies.

Well actually, that was just me stretching. I can go a lot higher. Even more so than this. But I was aiming for Jon's face here. He's only 6'1". I could do OVER his head no problem. (I know, I know. You are all sick of this pic. Sorry.)

Unless she's taking a trip to Barbados before the end of the month or Africa in the next year you have nothing to worry about, I'll stay far away.

I'm specially trained by the Marine Corps to disarm you. You think you can hang with me? (Too bad I've never been in a real fight. But I guess there's a first time for everything.) Aww, screw it, let's ride about 50 miles then stop and have a few beers.

Were I a robot, an android, HAL9000, or some other type of machination, now would be the moment I would blurt out "DOES NOT COMPUTE!" in a cliched, overly-computerized voice, and then spew out my magic smoke, silencing my circuits forever.

You and the rainbow bike, clown bike or whatever. I think we should solicit suggestions.

Sean at Vecchio's can build you the truest wheels. He has a lot of happy customers who race and only insist that he builds the wheels.

Talk to him about your needs. He will help you find the perfect set. After all, he built me the perfect bike.
