Celebrating the 4th with New Wheelset

Finally upgraded the Specialized with a new wheelset. While certainly not the most expensive set of wheels (far from, actually), the Vuelta Corsa SLR wheels are a great value and I got them on sale in a deal I couldn't pass up. These hand-built wheels weigh only about 1,400 grams and feature bladed rims to help cut through the air. They're also a deeper 22mm than my stock rims, adding some strength.
