jokes jokes jokes. obviously they're crap. but i got 'em at a super cheap price and they're replacing my stolen wheelset. i don't necessarily have the money as a broke college student to put into nice wheels. plus building wheels is fun.

Drop the curtain guys, his legit.

Yeah velocity makes a good quality rim. Maybe even an upgrade from what you were riding lol. The best name to ride with.

ya 140 for rims is too much... that's why i only paid 70. and when it's my means of transportation to and from class i kinda need them. plus there's always a chance they could be stolen again so why drop mega cash into something nice?
