Here's a few of my rig's

 

1999 Cannondale CAAD4 Saeco which I built to catalog/TdF spec.

 

2008 Cannondale Capo Track Bike (I have track drops and SPD-R's on it now)

 

I also collect Schwinn/Yeti/Lawwill downhill bikes and frames (I have a few more complete bikes ontop of these)

How do you like those 4 spoke wheels? I really dig the look of them.

post #3124 of 3444

I wonder what kind of sound they make?

:popcorn:

The later model Spinergy RevX's with the stiffening tabs joining the spokes are alright, but the earlier ones without the tabs were known to explode mid corner. They do sound pretty sweet cutting through the air. Like a combination of a choppers blades at a low speed, and the usual hum of carbon wheels.

Thought I'd throw up a shot of my newest mountain bike which was actually built this past summer...Canfield Bros. Nimble 9 Gen. 2. Built it up single speed full rigid. Steel frame...this thing is a joy to ride. The pic shows it before I was 100% done the build but it's been done most of the summer and has some miles on it now. Great frame!

I owned those same wheels for a few years.  They always got a reaction from people for sure.  Especially non-biker-types..."what are those?".  In a cross wind you could get yourself in some trouble.  Once I came over a hilltop and the cross wind I suddenly hit almost knocked me over.  Once riding in some crazy wind I stopped at my bike store but had to take the bike in because when I held the bike it literally was flying horizontally!!   never had any bad experience with them like others with the wheel cracking badly during riding.  There were a bunch of lawsuits unfortunately.  My rear wheel would hop badly once you hit about 27mph.  I sold them with full disclosure on eBay.  I bought Campy Eurus tubeless rims which are just fabulous.

When I saw them moons ago, the sound of chopper blades were the first thing that entered my mind. On my Schwinn the Matrix Iso rims with DT Swiss Bladed spokes had a beautiful soft whispering sound between 30-40 mph downhill.

Looks like Reynolds is producing 931 stainless steal tubes. Amazingly thin in places too.
