I heard, and of course this could be from the usual crew of Becker Bashers, that the LBF wheelsets were pretty inconsistent. Of course, none of my LHS stock anything by LBF, so I've never actually seen them. I've always wanted to pick up one of their Trinity hoppers, which even though they're pretty much out of the era I model, I'd love to have for curiosity's sake. They really looked like incredible models when they were released.Mountaingoatgreg said:HEY don't forget LBF out of Roseburg Oregon. The wheelsets are already brown and are ALL metal not the crappy metal plastic mix. They are insulated and look like the old Intermountain wheels without the nickle-plating. Wheelsets are 33" and 36" and roll as good or better then anything on the market. I would also recommend getting "THE TOOL" which reams out the journals and makes the wheelsets roll even better.
