CHRISNUMBERS - how much street time you put in on those?
JOSHUGI - where all at are you? How much street time do you need to put in? Car to venue or serious distance walking?
I use the Gaines wheel, but I put a lot of mileage on it. Most of my to-and-from is by public transportation (mostly subway) so the bass gets pushed around on NYC sidewalks, Brooklyn bluestone sidewalks, asphalt etc., all of which tends to be in less than perfect repair, so having a wheel that has some "give" to it as well as durability is important. If you're going to be driving most places or pushing it short distances on well maintained smooth pathways that's gonna be less important.
