    Loverly

    How are they going to be used? I'm going with the steel version for cost and my flabby weight at 185 or so Plan on them being a street/rails to trails wheelset.

    They are not mine..

    but a customer's. I run Disc brakes !!
    Now I might have to get some of those spokes and re-lace my DT/819 set or maybe try some Extralite hubs, Pillar Ti spokes and NT Olympic rims!

    Why settle for steel Nino ? That would be another 60-70g saving !

    They're gorgeous DirtBoy !

    That's what I said!

    Nino, gop for it! They also have a GOLD spoke version.

    They will be much better than the AC crap you have now. I jhave tlaed to several wheel guys who compared AC, Tune and Extralite internals and were very impressed by Extralite. better than AC and some said maybe better than Tune, but would have to see long term results first. Tune is proven as a pretty good light weight hub, but Extralite's might catch up!

    Now these are NOT cheap as you know. But the quality looks pretty damn good. Do you think the Eclipse Kit might fit? The wife now wants a pair for her ride !!
