The place for fixies and other rides without gears
Thats shipping weight man.
They are a damn sight lighter than the figures quoted onthe stars rims.
don't 4get to tick the free tubes option.
I'll be ordering a set of these soon too
Is the rim tape worth having? At two bucks it's no biggie, but I'd rather save throwing 'em in landfill if they're just the useless hard plastic stuff...

It stops the spoke nipples puncturing the tubes. The rim shouldnt puncture a tube, unless its been scratched somehow.
MY RIDES: My Velospace Profile
they landed yesterday mate, just did some more work on the bike, check it out here http://solirossi.wordpress.com/2010/04/ ... n-stage-4/
what do you think?
Ordered a set of these puppies yesterday, looking forward to getting my SS project rolling...
Thinking mebbe I should've thrown a crankset into the order as well but will see how I go with stock 52T to start with....
52x18(the f/wheel supplied) will give you 76.2 GI on 25c tyres.
I'll see how I go... Having blown my entire budget for the build on the wheelset I'm reusing as much from the original bike as possible
If I find I like riding ss I'll probably throw some cheap wheels on this one and sell it on, then find a nicer frame to build up for myself with a bit more thought, effort and $. Figured it was a false economy to buy cheap crap wheels though.
Heard a knock at the back door this morning while I was still half asleep - when I got up there was a box on the doorstep. Nice surprise as I wasn't expecting them until the middle of next week
