    Seriously - talk about an impulse buy. I don't even think I need new wheels, but now I have a set coming!

    Thanks for posting. I bought them a week ago and they showed up last night. $89 +$19 for shipping. I half thought that there would only be one wheel in the box.

    Good stuff!!

    They had the same set in black last week! Too bad it got sold out quick. The $95 XTR hydraulic brakes are gone too :-(

    How much does your king/819 wheelset weigh? I was about to pull the trigger on a craigslist deal on xt/819s for 200, but saw this and thought, "well, if I ride them for the rest of this season and don't trash them, I should be able to sell them used and get almost all my money back anyway." They aren't ust, but half the tires I run have tubes in them anyways.
    Had to buy a set just to try them out. Any concerns about the low spoke count, or are these pretty ok for extended/aggressive xc?

    Are these drilled for Presta or Schrader?

    Ordered a set last night so I could upgrade my son's bike to 6-bolt hubs and give him my previous take-off BB5's. I'm a Clyde with plenty of crashes under my belt so this 24-spoke wheelset isn't intended for me personally. My son's OE wheels will go onto my vacation bike to upgrade those craptastic wheels when I next see the bike.

    It's worth mentioning that if you use PayPal "Bill-Me-Later" option for the first time, you'll get a one-time $10 credit.

    Damn you guys.

    Didn't really require another wheelset, but the price was too good. Just ordered two sets, delivered to my door (Vanc, BC) for just under $218.

    I don't have a scale but according to Mavic the front is 900gr and the rear is 1040. They "feel" very light to me... but I'm a noob.

    Pretty cool

    Finally a righteous deal around here. Especially for me as I was assembling parts to replace a wheel that was stolen from my daughter. That stolen wheel was a Hope disc rear hub, Mavic 717 Disc and DT 14/15 spokes. This won't be as light but they'll look cool and will probably be OK on my daughter's bike for the price, which is not much more than a nice disc rim alone.

    I had noticed the same rear wheel alone at the Nashbar for $80.

    I got a shipping confirmation at 1:15AM showing expected delivery in Atlanta tomorrow from Little Rock - at 38.0 lbs. WTF? No way that's only one wheel for half the price of a complete wheelset but did they throw in the rest of the bike too?

    Or 30+ lbs worth of rim strips and sealant? Or lead shielding to protect my privacy from UPS x-ray machines? Holy crap. If these wheels weight 15 lbs each, that explains the price and they're going back. No, wait...that's too damn heavy to ship back!
