Thanks Dave. I ordered some canti brakes last night and I think Ill give the stock wheels a try. It may take some work to get the pads adjusted since the sidewalls are angled though. The spokes seem to be 12 ga. and to my surprise, the stock wheels seem pretty well built! I haven't got into the bearings yet, but I'm about a month a way from finishing this build and have plenty of time to check things like that out.
Today I bobbed the fenders and I'll see how that works out if I can even use fenders with the brakes.
