Got my spokes in the other day...Buchanan should really re-consider the "B" stamped on them...am I the only one that thinks it looks like a flaw or a cast mark??...needless to say I am sanding them off..it will add a cpl of days to getting my wheels laced up but I just can't deal with them looking like that. ;D

The B on the spokes is what helps you prove to anyone you sell the bike to that it has quality stainless spokes on it :)

Nice wheels!  I think you'd be best off replacing the bearing you have to pull for the $10 or so they cost.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I you smack it hard enough that you are thinking it may not be worth the hassel of removing, you've probably damaged the rollers and now have to replace it. I wonder if without that spacer you could go at an angle and hit only on the outter race?

yes I can get a good bit of the outside...if I could only hit on the inside race I would not use it again for sure...I am having a real time getting this wheel trued up....really really bad...not the best quality...but what do you expect for that price

When you bought your rims, are there any specific profile requirements for the cb's. They seem to be marketed towards yamaha xs's. If there isnt any profile requirements, whats the difference between getting different profile's. Performance? Feel of the ride?

not really...a wheel is a wheel...different # of holes...different angle on the holes as well...and diameter difference of course...but I am no expert...
