How are those rims? I almost ordered from the site when I ordered my frame because they where super cheap. Any good?

I've only put 50mi on the bike, so I can't really give an impression of them long-term. They're over-built for doing tricks, so I'm sure they'll last most people fairly long. I personally only use my bike for commuting, so they're way stronger/heavier than I need.

Hmm! if they're over built for tricks I might have to get a pair haha.

is there a way to take the giant sticker off of the side?

Yeah, it looks like it comes off pretty easy, but you may need some Goo-Gone afterward. I keep meaning to take them off, so thanks for the reminder.
