Clear Rims?

Anyone see the busa on the front of the new TW issue? those rims look interesting

maybe now they'll stop taking one of front brakes off... though I wonder how well they hold up and what they're made of...


I'm think'n Plexi... (PS: <-- this guy sucks )

Read about them b4 I think its lexan or pyrex. They look cool but you don't see them around so they're either really expensive or no good. Or maybe it hasn't been in a rap video yet so the squids don't know if tis cool or not!

Maybe Lexan. We mount some freaking heavy transformers on it at work. Good strength, good dielectric properties, not as heavy as pyrex, and doesn't crack as easy as Plexiglass.

Hope no one already said this... I didn't read the whole thread.

They are made of lexan. It's the same stuff they make those Nalgene (practically) unbreakable water bottles out of. VERYYYYYY strong and hard stuff, and light.

I would 100% trust those wheels to hold up well on a bike. The only concern I would have is sharp impacts. The only way to easily break that stuff it is a very pointed and hard impact (i.e. go at it with a big icepick or something). Not sure if that's really a concern when riding anyways, so I think they'd work great, and be VERY light.

Haha! Id think about the clear plastics, but Idk about the clear rims!
Probly try to paint the inside of the plastics, keep it longer. If i needed new plastics, but i dont see the point of throwing big money on rims when the stocks are fine!
