Current Stage Info:

Added a new Wheelset,Put back my gatorskins,Much better iMiNUSD Crackset, along with a Charge Masher chain. I was going to go for a deeper section wheel, but the regular deep v's is better suited for the way I ride not to mention its cheaper.

Silver Omniums, Silver Mavic Open Pros to Philwoods, Thread the fork and get a Nitto Jag / Nitto B125AA, Thomson Seatpost, and a Vintage style saddle.

agreed with omniums and the wheelset, although dura ace hubs are way better in my opinion. Even the low flange are nice, and the njs stamp is nice to see. thompson post is good too, but as far as a vintage saddle id just go with something from the 80s because a brooks would look weird on a thompson. Also a threaded headset with a jag stem would look weird with omniums and a thompson, so keep it threadless and throw a nitto threadless or even a thompson two bolt with some ritchey classic curves. That'd look badass.

Very nice!
as far as sugestions:
H+ eros are also a good strong wheel if you want a deep dish rim for fixed.
H+ sl42 same strength & deepness they come in spolished silver, black and White with matching machined sidewalls. 32h. I use them on as my prefered rim. as strong as the b43's but not as heavey imo. . I like the miche primato/advanced, SRAM S300 Courier crankset w/ GXP BB, sugino rd-2 or messengers are also trusty crankset that come with BB for one price... all affordable under $200.00 us dollars.

hubs are like handlebars... it boils down to personal preformance or the goal you want to acheive. be it speed strength tricks pop-style..
I like Halo & Gran Compe hubs... because they give me the best speed and durable low maintenance, (if every they needed it. so far mo mantenance on either) for the price range I set for myself...you could get either or for $150 sometimes less on ebay/amazon for both the front & rear... I can't convince myself yet to spend more such as chris king or philwood... actually if interested check ebay out I have a pair of anodized purple halo hubs I that I only put about 30miles on them... if you decided to make something on you bike pop out & catch the eye (this isn't a sales pitch haha) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Halo-Front-Rear...
