haha too funny, but it depends what you're looking for in the front wheel. Mavic open pros are never bad. Relatively light and since it appears you aren't doing any actual track racing they're great for riding on the road. They stay in true very well.
Sep 11, 2011 @ 16:43
Open Pros are nice. But I was hoping to get something a little bit more aero. Apparently CXP33s are a little better in that department without compromising a lot of weight. I was thinking about getting some bladed spokes and lacing one of those to like a Chub front. Maybe a Dura Ace. Can't make up my mind on a hub either.

Considering the fact that my frame is an '05, it's a little bit on the heavier side anyway. I might just say fuck it. My homie needs money and told me he'd shoot me his aerospoke for 75. lol

also never saw the allure of super deep v rims (formation face, b43, etc). heavy and uggo imo. would much rather have box rims

Am I the only one that cut weight by not putting on thick ass rims and fat tires?

What bro? You like ridin' a heavy ass bike?

Sep 14, 2011 @ 21:44
you must have weak legs if you cant commute with bigger tires and deep v's / b43s, etc. you riding velodrome or something? you tryna have the lightest bike for what? you dont want sturdier equipment for your road use?
Sep 14, 2011 @ 22:00
A DeepV and a B43 is one thing. But what the fuck is the point of riding with some big ass tires? So you can bust a dope back flip off a loading dock? Go back to bmx bro. Fact of the matter is the lighter your shit, the quicker you're gonna be. I'm not saying you have to go dual fuckin discs, but two b43s and some fat ass tires is completely counterproductive and unnecessary.

my friend runs fatass tires and he's quicker than most people riding fuji track pros with 25s, so what? he has never popped a tube for the past year. the dude also goes on like 30-40 mile rides too and runs through bad road like nothing (cracks, rocky roads, and all that)

are you that slow that you cant ride fat tires?

The saddle is from an old mountian bike, its comfy as hell but ugly. Im copping a new saddle a nitto stem. I also might paint the silver in between the tire and rim black.

You're missing the point bro. If you really think that running heavier shit is going to make you go faster, I don't know what to say (unless you're ALWAYS going downhill). It's simple science. As for your friends with the Track Pros, they must feel like pieces of shit. All I'm saying is tell your boy to throw a 23 on front and a 25 or even a 28 on the back and tell me he doesn't notice a difference. Sure he might save a tube or two every couple of months, but they're only like 4 bucks.

i didnt say it makes you faster, all im saying is why would you try to get as less weight as possible and lose durability? if people can ride fast with all that weight, why not keep it? it's different if you're racing, but if you're just city riding, you dont want to have gear that would just keep breaking on you easily.

what is a good bike material (frame) for riding mountain trails and be light but still durable

what tires are you running on?
& how would you approached painting the machined edge? i might do the same

low profile box rims are just as strong as a deep rim it's just aesthetics mostly. thicker tires will be more forgiving on the street tho, not saying I'd ride dual 32 randos tho haha
