HAHAH yeah yeah, theyre just like a wii, and the faster you shake em they noisier they get.... and if you lob them hard enough they can break your tv too
on hte plus side you hear me coming thats for sure.... hahah
AUGHHHHHHHH SHAMALS. yes i wish.... those in my opinion (and judging by what you said youd agree) those would be some of the nicest looking rims on this bike... and possibly in general (and a shimano man is sayin that...) but i figured out that the shimano alternate cable routing wouldnt work for this XTR rear derailleur i was running, so i have the 9speed dura ace casette around doing nothing and a new 10speed dura ace 12-23 on instead. I did figure out that I can run my dads old school dura ace hubbed campy omega strada hardox XL wheelset, sure theyre heavy heavy heavy clinchers..... but they havnt come out of true since i was born.... so i think that says something. (the chain is SOOO close to rubbing on the stay when i shift down to the 12 tooth, but i checked iwth a flashlight, verified that its just BARELY not rubbing, and stuck some electrical tape in there for saftey and settled on these wheels for now)
i probably should update my thread.... with pics n crap
heres two that have been scaled by my facebook ( i have higher res ones...) (drive side & non drive side) of how she sits right now, should be 10 more days ish until the Titanium seatpost goes in....

the bike tubes definately look massive now that i took off those deep dish wheels. (ill get those worked out eventually... but the competition season isnt until next year, and other than for competitions theyre kinda just BLLLINNNNG, which i like... but i also like when im not cussing out my bike because i pop a tire every 4th ride ish haha, at 130lbs thats unacceptable.)
& here is one that i think you guys will get a laugh out of / just incase you wonder what kind of 'tard is riding around this bring yellow bike... ( i have my fun.... )

Damn, how long has it been? I remember I ordered a bunch of crap forever ago, specifically the Handlebars and Titanium seatpost at the same time (with at on of other stuff...) the guy with the handlebars was a couple states away from me, but dicked off sooo long that it arrived two days AFTER the guyh who sent the seatpost from TAIWAN got there.... about 17 buisness days later.... if your gonna sell your crap on ebay you should ether ship out in a timely manner or have a damn good reason why not.
so, basically, its been a pain.... but i finally got it riding Perfect.... now all i have to do is slim it back down hahah, im up to like 19.5lbs!!!!
I might try and buy an old shamal wheelset (those are spoked "normally" annd not in that wierd like 5 star config like the new ones right?) and swap out the hubs for some dura ace goodies.... shouldnt have a 10 speed problem then
(off to do research.....)
but yeah, I think youll be pleasantly surprised with how it rides... it might also be the fact that it feels like it fits quite a bit better than my other bikes...
i hit a new record for a sprint the other day which was 38.8 mph = 62.4425472 kph (turns out you ride alot faster when you are running from something that doesnt get tired and you really dont want hitting your bike)
what parts are you still waiting on? cant be much.....
p.s. i finally uploaded the pics of the seatpost collars
the black one will fit the klein you got and the mantra... the other ones are smaller (cf and woodman... i think they are 34.9? ) i can find a bolt for the woodman for ya if you want as well.... sorry it took so long!
