Suits You? Arrrr Guile?

Keeping today's posts on the track tip, the Blog felt obliged to inform the general public that as of 10:14 AM, we have argyle and "suits" Velocity rims in stock. Obviously, these are non-machined for your piddling velodrome dreams or for a bit of MASH plagiarism. You've been warned!

"Suits" is at best a mediocre name for that rim. Those Aussies at Velocity should have named it the "Poker Roll"

There should be a warning posted on the box that ships those things. Random seizures may occur when truing.

Velocity USA imports them and then has a guy in the US powdercoat the design on them. Certain minnesota distributors have designs that will only be available through them as will a few other companies. Its a sublimation process just like Geekhouse uses.

Dammit,
I feel funny inside, like I want two of these beautiful bike parts to roll around town and fit in with all the Bucket Head attire but some how, seriously I think they would look good built up on my shiny work Hubs....my rims rolling are like over 6 years old now and back then I paid $7.50 US dollars each....dammit, you tease.
How much are they and who the heck is buying them?

Another thing I would like to mention about these two rims was that I placed them into our available inventory around 11 AM. Then went to lunch. By about 4 pm they were pretty much sold out. I have not seen anything move that fast in quite awhile, and in the middle of winter for that matter. These things sell like hotcakes.

is the hotcakes expression still relevant today? maybe "these things sold like the new iphone..." you get the idea. Theyre interesing for sure but too busy for my tastes; i prefer to keep it classy and simple with faux wood and cartoon sperm swimming all around

As an owner of both an Iphone, many boxes of Bisquick and what seems to be gallons of maple syrup and can say without any ego that An Iphone is nothing in my eyes compared to a steaming 2 foot high stack of banana nut pancakes.
