+1 to both of these. i ran a gatorskin in the front and a randonneur in the rear. i skidded the shit outta the randonneur for a while. had em for 6 months probably. still had plenty of life but i replaced it with a gatorskin just recently.

What's your price range? If you wanna stay sub 200, cop some Deep V's.

Check craigslist/eBay, best bet.

I'm not really informed in Hubs so I'm not going to misinform you, but as for rims if you're doing anything besides tricking cop some H+Son Formation Faces!
Aug 20, 2011 @ 22:33
cop a hed-3... and i've heard formula, miche, shimano, and philwood hubs are good.. but i don't know much about hubs either

Just picked up for $260.
Looking forward to make some adjustments (preferably seats first, shit sucks)

Anyone recommend me a new seat?

Not trying to talk shit. But why insult the Vigorelli with Sugino Messengers? Put some 75s on that beast. Clean ass frame though. What kid of hubs you got laced to those B43s?

yo yo yo whoa there, why dont you have omniums on that bitch
Aug 24, 2011 @ 01:47
Yeah silver would look way cleaner.

Are you saying you'd rather have a corny ass color scheme than legit ass parts?

75's are expensive, especially in relation to how cheap I got the messengers from my LBS. One day I'll probably upgrade to set of 75's at some point but I'm happy enough for now

I rock the cheap ass Turbo saddle from Selle Italia. If I wasn't worried about my shit gettin stolen, I'd get a fizik seat. Super sporty, super comfortable... Of course super expensive

Has this been posted? Thought this was cooler than ^^^

Does anyone know where I can get a built rear single deep V in solid black or preferably bright polished silver from an actual bike store instead of craigslist or ebay?

Are deep V's from origin 8 decent?

Some girl hit me with her car as she was turning out a one-way street going the WRONG WAY so she paid for a front and now I am looking for a rear. /coolstorybro
