Cracked rim? Broken spokes? Out of round and wobblier than an episode of Biggest Loser? You need new wheels and Bullo has a wheely good deal for you. Wheely good! I mean wheely!
Velocity are a Brisbane based company that make a huge variety of tasty rims, from hipster favourite “Deep V” rims, to traditional box section wheels and thoroughly modern hoops designed for the stylish rider who needs reliability. Bullo has latched onto a supply of Velocity “Fusion” wheels – including skewers, for $400. That’s a wheely good price for wheely good, hand made (not machine made) wheels laced to quality hubs. No more will you have to fret about people not calling out the potholes on a Tuesday bunch ride – just smash through ’em. Grind one down on the back of Chicka’s wheel and marvel at the rigidity. Broken spokes from bouncing off the crumbly Crit track will be yesterdays problem. Angle the front wheel the right way and deflect a Wilko motivational homily by blinding him with your shiny new wheel. A sure-fire shortcut to getting that low jealous whisper from the assembled riders on race day and the advantage of striking fear into your opponents on lesser equipment. Dare to dream about riding the Cannibal off your wheel, leaving Mick Hoult gasping and holding the A grade club champions trophy in your sweaty mits. Dream it! Sit quietly now and bask in the untold possibilities that the future could hold if you only had a set of Velocity Fusions!
You know what you have to do – head down to the Armidale Bicycle Centre and bellow for Bullo with your credit card extended and your significant other well out of earshot and order yourself a wheely good set of wheels. Velocity Fusions and an excuse to peruse the Bullo Wall of Wonder – what more could you possibly want? (new tyres maybe, and a new cassette and chain cos you can’t fit that grotty old rubbish to your flash new wheels!)
