That's insane Eigner!!!!!

Q: why do those 'bora's' have red hubs?

Your new dtswiss shoes look amazing as well!

And you can never go wrong with Edge....

It looks like you have 4 pairs of wheels that are all about the same profile / depth

What affects your choice on which pair to use..?

I've been seeing a lot of these dt Swiss wheels lately. I always thought they looked overpriced. Are they that good?

They are overpriced. Its Reynolds DV46 UL rims with DT Swiss spokes and hubs. Runs silky smooth. As you can see from my EDGE wheelset I am kind of a sucker for DT Swiss equipment.

Sorry for the OT but love the pics on the wall as well, awesome flicks both:

Harry: [shivering] Lloyd, I can't feel my fingers, they're numb!
Lloyd: Oh well here, take this extra pair of gloves, my hands are starting to get a little sweaty.
Harry: Extra gloves? You've had extra gloves this whole time?
Lloyd: Uh yea, we are in the Rockies. Jeez!

I for one don't understand how you can have a Dumb and Dumber poster in the same room as a Pulp Fiction poster. When I was in college, I had that Pulp Fiction poster framed along side black and white Godfather and Casablanca posters. Image

edit; btw; that's my dream bike.

WW is part weight, part style, part performance;
those film pics would look vastly better with the pic hung directly off a hook rather than off a length of cord.
:smartass:
dumb & dumber? the name says it all!
pulp fiction? class!
casablanca? class!

I love dumb and dumber :P
Yes, it would look super if they hung directly off a hook in the wall, but I am not allowed to do anything to the walls.

D&D is really funny. They need to make a followup movie catching up on the life and times of Harry and LLoyd. Heard they're now into weenie bike racing.
