Still can't decide on a wheel set. It's the only thing I need to complete my bike. I'm thinking ribcages or 7ka's. But leaning more towards ribcages. I just can't seem to make a choice on hubs. If I go cassette it's either the Odyssey anti-gram, BSD back street pro, or the shadow btr 2. And I would keep the front hub the same brand as the back. Can anyone help me make a solid decision on which would be the better, stronger and more reliable choice?

You got only great options, you cannot really go wrong with either, personnally I would go for a set of ribcages with BSD hubs.

I agree with the solid choices.

Honestly flip a coin for the hub brand, and then the same for the rims.

Then you have solid wheels. Especially if they come in the color(s) you are aiming for.

Ribcages to antigrams would be my personal choice

Ribcages for sure. They're cross laced for a stiffer wheel build.

BSD Pro hubs and Gsport Ribcage rims, front and rear. Kinda pricey, unless you wanna go down a bit and go for the original BSD hubs and Gsport Rollcage rims for a few $10's of savings.

Cool thanks guys! Thinking I'll probably get the ribcages with the BSD pro's front and back. But what do think? Should I get Chrome or black hubs? This is what my bike will look like.Photo

My thought was black rims, black hubs, black spokes, and Chrome nipples with white wall tires.

id go polished rims but your choice dude. I'd go gsport-bsd aswell tbh, although all the hubs are basically the same aslong as you get the chromoly axle for the antigram. Looking like its gunna be a sweet build anyway! That a wtp scorpio? Just retired my wtp irish a few months after 3 years, they make great frames!

It's actually a 2015 WTP patron frame. I've got chrome bars and white walls for it too. Just didn't have them when I took the pic.

If I were you I would just get complete BSD wheels. Their new NASA rims are super similar to the ribcages, for about $15-20 less. Very quality design. I've been beating on mine for about a month or so now and like them much better than my previous Odyssey and Gsport rims.

I would go antigram to birdcage front and rear. Polished hubs, silver spokes. Black rims

OR just get odyssey A plus wheels. I'm running aerospace from and rear and love them

All chrome, baby!

The chrome is going to be pretty evenly distributed. If youre set on white walls id say go all black wheelset. But if you plan on changing to black walls id say go chrome with the rims. Regardless it looks pretty sick already. Good luck on deciding!
