what new wheels for this SS

Postby cal_blam » Sat Jul 24, 2010 9:35 am

Looking at some new and shiny wheels for my old malvern star steelie conversion. Its a light frame and I ride it every day, so consider it's all OK to spend money on nice rims. Not that I need any excuse.

It's between a box style rim to suit the bike as is - Velocity Razor silver hubs spokes and rims
OR
something like Mavic Open Pro for a racier look - black hubs and rims, shiny steel spokes

Any thoughts or other ideas? Yes I know it needs cleaning.

Razors FTW.
More of a classic style to keep it consistent.

yeah same here... black is an excuse not to polish the shiny bits. And shiny bits are oh so sexier 8)

What about some deep v's? People love the look of them but are heavy and may clog up the weight.

Yeah, I'd say Razors too, would look pretty good.
