Very nice! Every time I see a picture of your bike I feel compelled to go to the basement and wash mine. That thing is clean.

I wish I had a basement... must be nice... I wipe it down once a week when I ride a lot (summer), but now that its cold outside it wont need it..

Thanks

Nice wheels, verry nice wheels, and bike too
Very sweet ride!
Thanks, I likes

I'm guessing you're glad you didn't sell it. It is beautiful!
Yes and no... But it does ride nice and I'm going to be keeping it...

When's the next Yorktown ride with new wheels?
Not sure... I ordered a Castelli long sleeve/pant kit last night, winter gloves, shoe covers and a winter skull cap. So once that gets here I'll be looking to give it a try...

Cool wheels, beautiful bike. My first "real" road bike was a 1973 Raleigh Grand Prix ( bought new, that's how old I am ), they've come a long way since then.

I'm up there with you as my first road bike was a 1976 Raleigh Supercourse mkII (Red and White, bought new). I loved that bike and wish I had it today...

What did these replace. How do the Novatech hubs work? What made you choose them over White Industry's or Shimano?

The Novatech's work great. Maybe not as light as the whites, but cheaper and didn't like the looks of the Shimano's. I replaced a set of Easton EA50 Aero's that flexed to much for my liking...
Rob @ PSImet did an outstanding job with these and they are the best riding wheel I have been on...

I like the new wheels so much I just ordered a second set from PSImet. These will have lighter Novatech hubs, better/lighter spokes and the same rims and come in around 1574 grams with the same spoke count.

Visit www.psimet.com and fill out the short quote on the left side of the page and get a quote from Rob..

just going for the lighter weight? What are you going to do with the other set? Those look like nice wheels that will last you a long time.
