The spoked wheels (along with the fenders) is what totally sold me on this model.I almost took the classic myself but I basically abuse and then sell my bikes it would have been wasted on me. I'm also very over metal fenders... (that ding, bend and crack). I do like the spoked wheels and I wish there was a 5th model of the icon priced in the middle with spoked wheels.
I love the look, but don't relish the thought of being stuck on the road with a punctured tube.
That being said, I'm converting these rims to tubeless when my tires are in need of replacement.
