Was thinking this wheelset looked weird (it's the decal placement)

These must be being considered b-stock because of the decal being at 90* from the valve stem; if someone is good with this color and no machined brake surface, are these Vueltas decent trainer...

I'm not even mad at art, but the fork on a stool just isn't aesthetic to me.

If the bike has low mileage and no signs of wear then the bottom bracket probably doesn't need any attention, I think that's the consensus right?
