 Thanks for the compliments guys...

What you see there are 2009 DT 340's (black with the Chrome logo stickers) front and rear. I feel like the rear hub looks a little pinner but the black and chrome match the frame too well. I built up some chrome Ringle hubs to Black Spank Stiffy's also. They look good too but budget/weight/style the 340's and the Chrome Spike's work for me.

 Sick bike! How you like those rims? I might get some too for my session. They are strong?

 Small flat spot after my first ride. But in fairness I'm 230+ gear, almost no finesse, and I broke it in on Cold Springs Trail (ROCKY!).

 I stand corrected... I pulled the tire off to check the rear wheel now that I have a broken in the bike. Rear wheel perfectly true, still properly tensioned and round. What I thought was a flatspot was actually just a good ding in the lip of the rim. I massaged it back with a crescent wrench easily.

 It's a KMC X9 SL. I have no idea how many links there are but I probably cut it down about 4 links from full length when I installed it...
