What happened to all those fancy-schmancy wheels...?riney
Apr 12, 2002 6:03 PM
Seem as though those pertty, paired-spoked, carbon rimmed, zoot-ical coated, F.B.S hubbed wheels will be a staying at home for most of the spring classics. I have always been a fan of the old OP 32s on standard hubs for my every day Roubaix, (beer can and roadkill littered poorly paved cenrtal Texas back roads).

Just wondering if there are any others who just say no to the every day use of botique wheelsets. (I am a closet owner of a pair of sestries that only come out for the Wed. crits so please go easy ;)...)
