Coming from an automotive background, it is used to refer to a cheese ball build.

I hope the build turns out pretty well! Leader has greatly improved on color and their welds. They are definitely really smooth looking.

you could also go with some mavic open pros or arayas and save some dough. and i'd go with mks sylvans or some all city's instead of those xlcs unless you just like those better. and use a 17t cog with that set up so you have more skid patches and a gentle but really fast ratio. good luck man!

thanks man! i already got the miche pistard wr's with a 17t cog as all the campagnolo pista's wheelsets i see online are tubular and i prefer clinchers. also, i hit my budget ceiling so, anything after whats already listed here is gonna be the generic one..hehe
