Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

New type of wheels

I was just wondering, they have all these type of wheels these days. I even see chrome wheels. Does anyone know if they'll ever come out with spinners or do they have them already?

Are you serious?

If so, I think they actually make them for some BMX bikes (custom only), but this is the roadie forum. They don't make spinners for Trek Madones, Serottas, or Seven Eliums.......

yet.

Here's my recent thinking, the opposite of weight weenie, low spoke count wheels, which I REALLY like, I'd like a set of super bling wheels... high spoke count, and the spokes have twists in them all the way down, and they're chromed, that would be awesome for a pimpin roadie. I swear I saw a Serotta a couple of years ago in one of my LBS's that had the twisted spokes, and didn't one of Lance's bikes have the gold twisted spokes for the final stage of his 6th? 7th? win? Anybody? I searched the web lightly, no luck.

I almost bought a set of wheels for my Harley with those spokes. They call them diamond cut.http://www.lickscycles.com/catalog/p...ge.php?pID=164

Had spinners on my ride, but my fuzzy dice kept getting caught in them.. traded them for a nice twice pipe.

I saw a set of "custom" wheels on ebay once that had something like 100 spokes per wheel. Think they were BMX size. Looked very "light" and would be great in a strong crosswind.
