I have to admit that I prefer the old decals to the new but that's not saying that they are "crappy". Why don't you but the cheapest wheelset you can (say for $100) and stick some "sexy" stickers on them? After all, it's the decals that make the wheelset. Oh, I forget, you are 13!

I somehow got back to Fulcrum Racing 3's vs Mavic Ksyrium Elite S vs Pro-lite Bracciano.

I seriously couldn't resist the looks of the Fulcrums, but in terms of performance, the Pro-lites should be better. Mavic is in the list cause my local bike shop stocks them but I'm not too sure about them.
Its really head vs heart now :lol: :lol:

You'll be fourteen by the time this thread finishes. Have you factored in any potential increases to pocket money revenues?

If he wants to buy a wheelset, wouldn't it be better if he didn't get married? :mrgreen:
