Demolition, had one with 5 spokes missing, stayed true, tough as hell. Haz Lights a great too, but I dont like them like 7KA's.

POST 3000 for me. I need a life.

Don't get the Zero? Why is that my friend? I hope you have had experience with this rim to say such a thing. And reusing spokes is fine if they're still somewhat new, and being relaced the same way.


And I had to buy wayyy longer spokes for my 7KA, because I switched from 48H to 36H, and changed rims, and laced it 4X.

for a front wheel go for the odyssey hazard lites. rear wheel check out the odyssey mid rim. I got it and love it. and it's still not that much heavier than the hazards.

go with the oddysey, but if you have more money, get a 7ka it worths the money!!, but if you want to have a good wheel you have to buy good spokes, that's for sure!!!
