Wheel choice

Postby Lots of steel bikes » Sat Dec 01, 2012 7:15 pm

Which wheels do you think suit? The velocities or the CXPs. Either way, I think it needs a black saddle and bar tape.
I'm not sure why the photos are chopped off from the right, they look fine in photobucket. I'll repost once I know the cause.

Another vote for Velocity.

Were you on a laptop running Firefox by any chance? It does that with bigger pics :? I'm fine on a 24" WS monitor but I'd have to right click on the pic and "show image" if the lappy was lit. 640x480px is a good all round size for most viewers

Plus one for the black of the velocity.

Pics chopped on iPad, i started a thread on forum feedback about jig pics being hard to see with no side scroll bars

You're going modern with brifters so you may as well continue in that direction & fit the velocity's.

Using an iPad but also is chopped on the iMac using Safari. Will pay greater attention to picture size in the future.

Are they 650's??

Velocity. Put silver spokes in the Mavics and you'd have a winner though.

CXPs. Crazy spoke patterns are well, crazy. I know, because I also have them.

I'm going to remove the Shimano decals as well. Not sure what I will replace them with. Be assured it won't be a 'Colnago'.

Removed the decals and did a bit of tape pinstriping. Added black and white saddle. Stayed with the white spoked wheels and too lazy to replace the bar tape.
