Too bad you couldn't find gold spokes to match the 'ring & chain.

Neat build, but I think this one is too nice to lock up in NYC as well. Looks like you need another bike!
How do you get a lock through that thing?Swat Dawg

That's a lot of spokes. If you're in NY, how in the world do you get one of the those burly-ass chains through there to make sure your wheel isn't missing next time you step out of the corner store?
Carefully...very carefully!ss-nyc

the spokes have a bit more room between them then what you see in the picture.
Straight lace woulda been hotter!Trevo

I dont quite care for the lacing pattern. Looks kinda goofy to me, but hey, it aint ma bike! now is it?

Hope she rides down stairs well!

I like. I'm looking for a 40h hub/wheelset to try a 5/5. (nm)TFerguson
