    Bummer, planning on fitting a 26x2.4 tire with wide rims on a 2011 scalpel. Going with asymmetric would be cool.

    Dude, those are proprietary spokes, try break one and good luck finding a source...

    That's a Mavic R-SYS wheel. It will kill you.

    You are so right! I'm wondering if Mavic made money all this time with a patent that should never deserved to be granted.

    I'm *just* beginning to seriously investigate carbon wheels and thinking of relacing my hubs to new hoops.
    I found these on eBay, and seem to tick all the boxes: 30mm inner, asym, decent weight, good price.
    Does anyone have experience/feedback regarding the vendor "HulkSports" and these rims:

    They have a less than 97% score on 27 sales, I'd run away from them based on that alone.

    True, but I make a habit of actually reading the negative reviews to learn *why*. Some people are just mouth-breathers.

    Of 27, there's one negative review, and the reviewer checked "negative" but his comments don't match. I suspect he's one of the mouth-breathing idiots that drag down internet sales ratings.

    I'm not defending the seller, I agree 27 feedbacks is a short list, but the other 26 seem to actually address rim quality and are legit reviews.

    Could be but I'd still let someone else be the test monkey.

    That seems to be about 100g too light for a 29' 30mm inner rim. As a comparison, here's another 30mm inner which they quote at 450g ...

    One feature that I wish my carbon rims had (3years old from LB and still going strong) - angled spoke holes. I don't think that these hulk rims have these.

    I'm conservative and I'd only buy carbon rims from an ebay seller that had sold 1000's of rims over a period of years and had a feedback rating of 99.5+%.
