  1.  
    are they worth the money? Or do you pay for laziness?
  2.  
    as a complete bike they are more expensive than the steamroller. mine is the del norte. (800.00)

    don't get me wrong...it rides real nice, although the wheels weren't true out of the box, which kinda rubbed me (and the pads) the wrong way.

    yeah that always gets on my nerves! funny enough i always find the uber cheap and expensive wheels to come true, the mid range rarely are.

    Super heavy. Beuty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I had a Del Norte until I got T-boned by a jetta. The fogrocket was a pretty beastie. I liked the geometry; the Del Norte is good for urban assault. Thick tires that last even when converted to fixed gear, a solid frame that doesn't bend easily, and oh so pretty chrome bar tape.

    Alas, poor Yorick
