While out and about on the internet I stumbled across this site www.rowantreewoolery.com. The company is located in Selah, WA, which I believe is outside of Yakima (mapquest will confirm or deny this claim). Anyway, they are the sole distributors of the Cherub wheels, which are handmade in New Zealand. I know this sounds really shallow, but I really like the way these look. I know that many of you out there are wondering why spin to drive ratio, etc. aren’t my first concerns. I guess the simple answer is that I don’t know my arse from a hole in the ground when it comes to wheels.
So my question is once again, do any of you tried and true spinners out there have experience or have you heard anything regarding the Cherub Wheels? I’m considering piling the kids into the van and heading over next week for a fun and exciting road trip so that I could take a test spin. Yeah! The thought of three hours of confinement each way with bored and cranky children doesn’t sound appealing. But it might be tolerated if the wheels are nice. And because we’d have to drive over a pass, I’m sure that Dimetapp for the kidlets is always a possibility. It keeps their little ears from popping while they snooze their way through the elevation changes 😉 .
