Ya, I know. Brians frame is coming along nicely and should go to glass bead next Monday.
But, I am very pumped on these Alchemy/Kinlin wheels. I built the rear today and it went together as easily as the front. I have never built a Kinlin from new, only trying to salvage somebody elses bad build. I was thinking the V-word, but these suckers are round. The set weighs in at 1379 gms. and this is with the 5 bearing rear hub and oversize bearing front hub. Great cross wheel set.


  1. Looks great! I am thinking this will be a better wheelset than my Mavics of the past, which were prone to drag. Very nice, especially without the decals. Just a little less showy than some other wheels I've had, and I like it that way.
