This is what happens when you convince your dad to build a fix gear bike…

..he goes and chucks a set of sick as hell B43 rims on Dura-Ace hubs with BLADED wheelsmith spokes and gold ano nipples!!! Not only that but he goes the whole bloody hog and goes radial lace on the front and wild as hell asymmetrical crowsfoot/radial on the rear.

Now that’s more gangsta than a private school kid chucking 18″ chrome wheels on his moms Merc!

Update 03/06/09: The rim came in yesterday and I started building it up today. The B43 is nice. The guys at Bicycle will be truing it and installing it onto the Arena. I bent my front forks the other day so they will also need repaired.
