    The wheels are super soft, I'd look into replacing those. Other than that it's solid. I'd ride it!

    You didn't steal it, but you didn't get hurt either.... Looks like a fun ride.

    Looks like the orevious owner had a p bike and upgraded to a Riot before selling. Not bad for the price.

    MY thoughts too... I ride a P1 and I like the cranks but the wheels were awful... Hubs will work for a while though, but the rims are pretty weak. I would have them properly trued and tensioned with some spoke freeze if I had to ride them for a while. Overall I think he made out pretty well on the whole thing. It doesn't look too beat up...

    What do you think of the Azonic Outlaw wheelset? Or am I better off buying everything separately? I'd like to keep the wheelset relatively close to or under $300.

    The Outlaw wheelset is pretty solid for the money. The rims are Alex Supra D rims. If you want to save some cash, check out the Performance Forte Loco wheels. They're cheaper. They're the same rims, just pinned instead of welded and 32h instead of 36h. Oh... and they only come in black. But they do have a satisfaction guarantee.

    I decided to get the Transition Revolution Wheelset in 32 black. $279 shipped, so about what I was looking to pay.
