Can you say BLING?
After months of procrasination, deliberation and contemplation, I finally made a decision on my new road wheels. Rather than settle for something just 'nice', I threw down for a set of DT Swiss RR1450 Oro's. What's so special about them? Well, besides featuring the very best, bombproof, light-as-hell hubs (240s's) and not breaking the rules (black rims), these babys feature gold spokes. Not just gold-coloured spokes, but 24 Carat gold-plated spokes. And they are a limited edition, not just a bit limited, but way limited, to 300 sets Worldwide, and only TEN in Australia. Hopefully none in Newcastle. Besides looking awesome, they weigh nothing (1450 grams/set) and will even do the washing up and make your bed for you. I may have lied about the last bit, but damn, who cares? Drooool.
