I'm a bit dissapointed with the quick releases tho. They weigh a ton each! I've ditched them and retained my original levers, which weigh much less. Apart from that, I'm a happy camper. ;D

V02 = happy camper = happy campag? :p<br /><br />I guess in your case they should be pretty much interchangeable....<br /><br />Hmm, we called our Pickfords Double century team &quot;a few spokes short&quot;, if we were outfitted like you though, we could simply call ourselves &quot;a few spokes&quot;<br /><br />Ok, no more sad sad puns

I'll put them together tonite, take them for a spin and give you guys the verdict tomorrow.<br />It's weird (and wonderful) how a two pieces of aluminium can make my body release so much endorphins that I'm close to tripping. ;D

Do i dare even ask how much they cost?<br /><br />i'm sure if i bought a set of wheels like that the pleasure would be short lived compared to the lingering illness of paying them off!!!

R4,000?<br /><br />Did your purchase involve a ski mask and a fire arm? Or is that the going price - seems aweful cheap for that quality wheelset.

Some shops are more expensive than others, but I probably caught the salesman napping. I paid for them and walked out of the shop before he actually woke up. It's kinda like: "Hi, I'd like those wheels. Take them down and wrap them up please. Who should I make the cheque out to?" ;D

Took 'em for a spin this arvy. I'm still in shock! It's like re-incarnation! :eek:<br />Felt like I was riding the bike for the first time. The wheels are super responsive, almost too responsive, but I'll have to get used to that. Acceleration was superb! Still need to test them on a serious climb tho, but I'm sure there will be plenty of those this coming weekend.<br />Altho I've commited the cardinal sin of changing components on my bike before a big ride, I'm a happy campy (as Rhodent put it)! ;D
