my rims are completely fawked beyond belief, they have like about 1/2 an inch of wobble, (most wobbely rims have about 1/16th an inch of wobble and its still noticable) they are slow as ****, i have to tape up one side on both of them cuase they are ****ed and warped and poped off the dust cover, they are uterly slow beyond belief, i spin my back wheel as hard as i can, spins for 18 seconds, front one spins for 34, and i remember spinnning pobies and its normal smoothness and spun for 8 minutes plus i think

is this a good deal?
should i buy some alex tripple walls with free agent hubs and like hella smooth, io think sealed bearing two, front and back 14mm, for 50 bucks used form a friend... and they are hella unused cuase he rarely rides

no rim tuer, and it cost like 15bucks to get them trued, + since they so wobbely that a rim truing wont do much..... only big difference i can think a wobbely rim makes my brakes not work, and maybe harder to manuel


but the point of this thread,

i had mx22s and they suxed!!! and i dont see whats so good bout those 7k rims they r lite(7005 alum) and it is a hazard lite without the extra cross sections for strength and duralectra is a waste of money all it is is a hazard lite rim with an anodized finish to keep the black look last longer and it cost $35 more then hazard lites!!!!!! waste!!!!!!

You ignorant kid.. atleast towards bike parts and whatnot.

1/2 wobble? wow! i've gotten my wheel to touch both seat stays. take a spoke wrench or vice grips.. and where ever the wheel bend to.. loosen the spoke that pulls it to that side and tighen the ones on both sides

not hard.
