    Show me your bike with AC 420 wheelset (Black!)

    Just ordered a American Classic standard build CR420 black wheelset.
    Can someone show me the picture of your bike with wheelset?
    Just wanted to see how it looks on others bikes.
    Thanks.

    I got it off the ebay, brand new.
    It was about 500 shipped. Standard build.

    I'll post a picture later once it arrives with my bike.
    Actually I am a newbie to this roadbike thing. I'm a mtn biker (Two Turners!, No they don't make roadbikes ) but my riding buddies all got a road bike and then they pushed me into buying one

    Building a Moots and can't decide...

    Should I go with the black or silver 420s? Black would be a nice complement to the bare ti frame but the silvers looked awesome. Take a look at this pic from Pez... Any thoughts

    Man oh man!

    This is a harder decision that I thought. the black sure looks stealth and I think would really complement the Moots brushed ti. But... I felt the same way about the Ksryriums when they went from black to silver. I always loved the black but now I think I prefer the silver.

    I'm sure you all can relate but in "regular" life, I'm never this indecisive!

    that white decal on a carbon frame really matches well with the AC 420 wheelset.

    Head tube length is 21cm. Standard is 19.5 cm for a 60cm bike, but mine has a 1.5cm extension.

    my color opinion

    I'm a big fan of the black rim/silver spokes. Great looking wheels...as soon as I upgrade I might treat myself to a pair on eBay.
