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.

But can they handle the drops .I doubt it . If you use these I will lower my car ,Put a set of 20's on it and do drift work up your driveway playing rap through my quadrophonic pro logic dolby stereo system.You whoring bitch!Next thing you will start wearing lycra in the bush , oh no , the skinsuit! Gold accessories are for Oxford Street,and anyway ,they won't go with your frame.Black is Black is (not prissy gold) Black is Black.

All of my blood sample test tubes are gold!! Next week I'm having my balls gold plated. You ride your golden wheels!! The golden wheels of victory!!! Perhaps you should make tooheys gold your beer of the week!! That would be gold!! There's a golden opportunity for many jokes about gold now that your spokes are gold, mr goldy spokes!! Your wheels are so sexy they give you a goldy horn!! go for the gold!! I love you!!! (: p.s. last week a big rock scratched my front wheel. I don't have golden spokes. lucky that!!! p.p.s.
