Re: Your next set of wheels?



I'd actually buy a set if I had a show bike to put them on, but I'd so much rather have a set of these

They certainly look nice, but they must be a b*tch to clean.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Your next set of wheels?

I love the CF rims!!
I am drooling for those things.
Too bad I barely have enough $$ to keep my bike right now.

Re: Your next set of wheels?

You don't want to know what those cost. *Dan was going to cut a friend a deal on some CF wheels, still way too expensive. *I wouldn't run them on the street either, forged aluminum is still the best material, IMHO, for a bike ridden on the street.

Edit: 20H, are those cracks in the rim on the 2nd picture?

CF wheels run about $4k/set

Also what I am wondering. There appears to be a hairline crack on either side of the spoke. Nothing I would doubt if it were riden on the street, especially up North with the great road maintenance you guys have.

Re: Your next set of wheels?

When I first saw this thread, I thought it would be asking about everyone's next vehicle purchase.

Anyway, CF wheels are nice for posing. Anyone that rides with them on the street deserves the surprise they'll get when they explode at the first major impact.
Many racing organizations won't allow them, either. CF slivers wreak havoc on tires, and aren't the easiest to clean up on black asphalt.
Purchasing two sets of magnesium wheels would be a much better use of that kind of scratch.
Spinners? Best left to the 'Busa crowd.

Didn't someone post a link to a company in Britain that sells DOT legal CF wheels? For some reason that rings a tiny bell in the back of my head

Since I don't own a set, I can't say for sure, but I think those might be clear curing gel edges, formed from vacuum sealing the wheels. Things like this are probably either left alone, or can be rubbed down to match the level of the rim.
