Just out of interest why the Alienation back wheel? I honestly think the V3 Federal is a better hub, OK it uses the same KHE Clutch Mechanism but it has bigger, higher quality bearings & it also has a thrust bearing behind the driver in-between the clutch which allows for a faster dis-engage allowing for tricks like crank flips if those are your thing! Also purely Aesthetics now but the Federal Shell looks quite a bit like the G-Sport Ratchet Cassette & comes quite close to matching the Marmoset Front, Kinda like a G-Sportish looking Hub Shell, which to me would look a whole lot nicer! If you can save up & get....

G-Sport Birdcage 36h Rim
G-Sport Marmoset 36h 3/8ths Front Hub
Odyssey HGS Spokes x 36
G-Sport Taper Hex Alloy Nipples x 36

G-Sport Birdcage 36h Rim
Federal V3 36h 9t RHD Freecoaster Hub
Odyssey HGS Spokes x 36
G-Sport Taper Hex Alloy Nipples x 36 Black

I cannot stress enough a good quality spoke MAKES your wheel builds! You cannot get much better than the Odyssey spokes unless you go for D.T Swiss spokes but they really do cost the earth! Also, i recommended the G-Sport Taper Hex Alloy Nipples. They aren't really needed TBH but.. They will lighten the wheel build up a smidgen & they are pretty blingy haha!

You have all Black wheels now so i am guessing you're going all Black with this wheelset too. I honestly wouldn't recommend Chrome Rims with modern Rims the companies due to stupid enforcement laws cannot use really thick Chrome so it wears out quicker & begins to flake off. If you really want Chrome Rims try & find yourself Polished/Raw Rims Odyssey & Eclat both make them.

I think that's my words of wisdom for you done today hahaha. Stay Cool Buddy.

Well imay actually end up with the Federal, but isnt it that shemale bullshit? Thats mostly why honestly, i prefer the male because i wont have to get new pegs and all that. Actually what i wanted to do is get like the stainless steel chrome spokes, and yeah, i am definitely getting some stronger spokes in the rear!! I want the odyssey ones. My front wheel i may just get the one already made. Thanks for the suggestions man! I may end up going with the all black wheels, but i would prefer the stainless chrome ones!!

Stainless spokes with Black Rims & Hubs does look bad ass for sure! The Axle is Shemale yeah, but i honestly believe the bearing arrangement is so superior its worth having a shemale axle. Whilst i am not their greatest fan i do think it offers something that stands out compared to the other Freecoasters on the market. Also i just realised something you might be interested in, I don't know where & when you'll be able to get it Buuuuut.. Check this Freecoaster out!

http://themerged.com/dartmoor-freecoaster/

Duel Hub Guards, Shemale Axle, Cassette/Coaster switchable! Same system as the Ezra just updated & i believe it has a better clutch system.

What do you think of that? Would be pretty sweet!

Ahh i quite like that. But i live on the wrong side of the ocean for that! And i think i would get one if i had the chance, for sure actually, but i would have to wait til i go to London next summer to get one, and idk if itll even be out or where to buy it there. haha

Looks real solid Loving it.
Only thing that kinda kills it is the seat I was about to get one some time ago but I'm happy I ended up getting the pivotal version.

Yeah i get what you are saying, but that seat is soooo comfy and nice for barspins. I know i dont really care for the rasta base much, but it isnt too noticeable. And i mean its DUB! gotta love that DUB! lol

Sick looking bike man, can never go wrong with black and some polished bits. I actually ordered that alienation coaster wheel setup from albes for like $162 shipped, we'll see how it holds up.

Back for another look smile I think the Black Wheelset with Stainless Spokes is gunna look really, really nice. I'm glad you've listened to the opinions of the guys on this forum, really taken it in & bought the parts for your bike! It looks great & i'm sure it rides great too! The Wheels will really finish this bad ass machine off!
