Finally got this sweet wheelset finished up. The rims are laced with Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes that are extremely close to the weight and certainly the look of the original titanium Wheelsmith bladed spokes spec'd for the Ti-Stix slotted hubs BITD. These are equally light but I expect somewhat fragile by today's standard.

The Ringle Super Eight and Super Bubba were NOS along with the matching QR Twisters and M900 rear hub. New decals compliments of Manitou916 and the "Made in USA" doughnut decal around the air valve hole was mocked up by Gil from a survivor rim I had available (He has the artwork on file now for anyone needing a replacement set). The hoops are finished off with a nice wrap of fresh Velox for good measure. Thanks also to Nick "elite504" for his guidance on spoke selection. Have an enjoyable Easter weekend all.

Went ahead and mounted up to some skinwalls to see how they look.

Pretty pleased I must say.

Will likely mount some FROs once I determine exactly what Yeti build these will go on.

Speaking of smoke, are you high? Tire logos should line up with air valves not decals. Form follows function man. Wake up. :D :facepalm:
