    At almost 1800gm those are almost two pounds heavier than the Easton XC 29er Wheels, same weight as $400 Fulcrums alloy rim wheels. $999 is a lot to pay for no benefit IMO.

    I thought they weighed 1640 grams? I bet they are stiff buggers and a great deal. What is not to like?

    If anyone is wondering, the Eastons weigh in at 1.25 courics while the Reynolds wheels weigh in at just under 1.5 courics.
    The eastons can be had for $250 more - for a nearly 10 oz. savings, or about $25 an ounce.

    2 lbs heavier than Easton XC 29ers?

    Someone have a hard time in math?

    I have a pair arriving tomorrow for my Tallboy C. Should be a bomber stiff and relatively lightweight set of wheels! On top of they, they're pretty much future proof with various axle options and even the ability to rebuild the rims on different hubs (standard J-bend spokes).

    A LBS had one set of the wheels identical to the CC set. They sold it for $700!!! I don't know if it was a rep's sample set or what, but for some reason many places are blowing these wheels out.

    Performance Bike will price match if you're a member and want 10% back.
