    Worksman and GEBE: impressions.

    Good frame, that's it. Tanaka PF-3300 runs like no tomorrow. Worksman quality is lacking. Parts are Wald, which i am satisfied with. Wheels were horrible. Rear wheel would not align with GEBE ring. Front wheel has provided at least ten flats. I hope you have a Dremel to grind the rim. Horrible quality. I hope Al at Worksman is reading this. Only thing I like about this bike is the frame. And, by the way, they didn't even bother to primer the frame prior to paint. Do not buy a Worksman.

    I like the looks of your build, nice clean lines. The problem with your rims seems to be that they are wheelmaster steel. I ordered two of them for my bike and when I looked them over they were junk, sharp burrs of chrome peeling everywhere. Ended up throwing them aside and got some DX32 Alex rims that I'm very happy with.
