why not just wear a sign saying "I'm a desperate horny doofus with more money than brains!"?

Yo, I'm getting a set of these, a neon bottom bracket, and a big Type R sticker on my 'dale.

Imma get a pair for my Huffy, and two pair for my Craftsman.

(Isn't there a Prince Paul song where he talks about someone putting 15" rims on a lawnmower?)

A content free web site enhanced with Flash. How entrancing. It'd be nice to have some basic inkling of the price range.

I saw a BMW with hubcaps that spun and I felt like smacking the owner upside the head. Fucking annoying things--make it impossible to gauge the speed of an oncoming car. Is he going to stop at the stop sign? Dunno, the wheels are still spinning. Aargh!

They totally need to cross-promote these wheels with the re-issued Stingrays.

Speaking as a grown man, I'd be ashamed to be seen on one of those Stingrays...unless you're teaching a kid to ride or something, it's time to grow the fuck up. Why not get a set of training wheels to go along with the bike?

Yeah, I'm a grumpy old man...now get the hell off my lawn, dammit!

I love Firefox, but one I hate is how when you try to open one of these data-rich flash/QT/etc pages, it freezes up every single copy of the program you have open.

IE didn't do that. Grrrr.

The site doesn't address the most important issue: are the rims playing-card compatible?

I remember visiting my cousins in Salina when the custom there was to put a regular sized bike wheel in back to give your Stingray that dragster look.

There was an elderly black gentleman here in Seattle who used to ride a customized ten speed, metallic gray with beau coup chrome, with those chopper style handle bars, a windshield and a streamlined mini-luggage case with running lights in the back. I really liked seeing him riding around on that thing downtown on Sundays when the traffic was light.

You need to spend more time on a bike. I like the spinners, but this is real bling.

I dunno, those spinners might look good on a Bike Hot Rod (from Kona, whose frames I had to break to grab that link).

Someone tell these guys. These wheels would look perfect on this.
