You only own a bike when you've violated every single term of guarantee.

If you guys are wondering about the AM versus getting XC rims it's because the former is wider and I plan to get a more trail oriented bike sometime in the future. I don't mind the slight weight penalty if it means I don't have to spend this much on a wheelset for 5-6 years.. :thumbup:

Took them for a 3 hour spin and the difference from the first stroke of the pedals was immense! Probably the best upgrade I've ever gotten :beerchug:
I was worried about the rocket ron, but I reversed the rolling direction of the tire halfway into my trip and it got alot grippier. Wet roots was still close to suicide, but strangely fun..
