    Which wheels with which bike? Opinions please......

    Scott Genius....I bought it a new Haven wheelset and took the DT Swiss off but Im thinking the Havens might look a little better on this Nickel?........I believe they are about even as far as quality of the wheelset is concerned....Give me your opinions please.....

    Sooo hard to decide.
    The lack of response to your queries indicates that this is a very troubling question with no right answer.
    So, how about settling for one of each?
    Of course, that will require another round of questioning about which one goes in front an which one goes in back.

    I guess they may look a little better on the Nickel just because the white lettering looks good with the white frame.
    But when I saw the first pic I thought they looked great there too.
    I'm a Haven fan though.

    More importantly, why the hell do you have so many fishing rods?!
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Well....Like biking, one bike is never enough...right? Different applications and desire for the latest and greatest are probably the main factors though.....

    BTW, the wife asks the same question............All the time.........

    Obviously, you're not an angler. We have rods for north flowing rivers and south flowing rivers. We have ones for freshwater, salt water and the brackish water where the salt meets and fresh water.

    We have left handed and right handed ones, as well as ones made for ambidextrous folks. Do you cast from overhead or from the side? Yep, rods for that and reels to accommodate the different line materials as well.

    The advantage is multiple rods is that it's more practical than multiple bikes. If I'm heading to the site and am not exactly sure what rod/reel combination will be best I can bring multiple ones. Imagine how cool it would be to ride your hard tail up the climbs, and then have your bike transform into a 180mm DH monster for the ride down? Not so realistic with a bike, but with angling, yep.
