    Stan's website has the white ones @ $40 and black @ $50. White ones listed as ~40 grams heavier--that seems like a lot of weight for what--powder coating matl's??

    Got a set of 29" White Flows plus valves for $104 shipped. Got cheap Sapim Race spokes and a set of WTB hubs (LaserDisc Rear, SuperDuty 20mm Front). Now I just need to find the time to build them, these projects are better for the winter!

    If you are going to wait until the winter to build them parts prices also go down after September when the season is over for the unfortunate ones and the 2013 stuff comes out.

    You really think they'll go down below $40 a rim

    They'll be sold out in September since the model is being discontinued

    I was talking about hubs and spokes.
    Definitely get the rims ASAP I will be surprise if they last past the end of the month.

    I couldn't resist the bargain, so I popped for a pair of white 26". I have a brand-new set of DT 204s laced to DT XR400's, which are really too light a rim for me. LBS quoted me $1/spoke ($64) + $85 labor, to lace the 240s' to the Flows. I may just mount tires on the XR400's and see what happens and keep the Flows as backups. At $40/ea. I should be able to unload them anytime without a big loss.

    I'm actually kind of surprised that they still have any left--they either have a lot of them or Flows just aren't that popular. They've been recommended to me many times when I've inquired about suitable wheelsets though.

    I don't have any wheel-building skills or experience so I don't know if $1/spoke is overkill or not?

    At $150 to have a pair of wheels built right.... I'd probably do it. Is that just straight gauge spokes?

    I contemplated rerimming my Crest 29" hope hoops with these flows, but I think I'm going to enjoy a well built wheel for a while. I'm not that skilled yet.

    650Bs are sold out at both Stans and Hammerhead. Whatever that means. I guess they didn't make that many Or everyone's building their closeout CL/HnR Nickels with 650B wheels
    If you can't play, display.

    Re: Hammerhead deal

    I tried.....$96 shipping (to GA) from Hammerhead!
    Shipping direct from Stans....$16!
    EIGHTY dollar difference? I'll allow Hammerhead to make a profit, but be up front about it, don't make your profit on the shipping fees!

    That must be an error on those shipping charges. I would call Scott and ask him about it, but I'm 95% sure there's a glitch in the system. Hammerhead is more than fair and a pleasure to deal with. BTW I'm in GA as well and I've ordered from them a couple of times.

    Kind of off topic, but do they make 650 mountain bike tires?

    Re: error on shipping charges

    I tried the Hammerhead bike website several separate times (no cookies saved) and came up with the $96 shipping charge every time. I also worked with two different local Zip Codes and shipping addresses....no difference.
    It sure seems like an error in the shipping fees, I'd like to believe that. That is why I attempted multiple approaches. The facts seemed to support my natural cynicism.
    I'm sure Hammerhead is a good place, perhaps I'll purchase something from them when they get their act together. (Multiple attempts, on multiple days, means someone does not have their ducks in a row)
    I'm sure I could have called, but I tend to shop early in the mornings....too early to call.
    I checked the Stans website, saw the shipping fees, and pulled the trigger.
