    for $600 I think I'd get some custom wheels, kings or Am classics laced to bontrager mustangs. or even a set of stans...

    19mm, that better be the inside rim width, or it's just bulky time trial wheels.

    While I was on Speedgoats site

    I did the custom wheel builder thing. King ISO's 32 hole to Mustangs with DT rev spokes alloy nipples everything black $626.00 and 180 grams lighter. I'm all for more choices put $550.00 seems a little high.

    I believe Bigwheel came up with this Cane Creek wheel idea about a 6 months. He seemed to think it worked great. The King wheelset weight won't include skewers, but I'm not sure about the wheelset in question.

    Normally I'd believe BW on his word, and actually in this case I do too, I'm sure those wheels are strong and stiff. It's just, I've never come across a complete brand wheelset that really out-performed a custom build worth the same.
    Only reason to ever buy complete wheels I can see, is optics. They look really nice. If I were rich, I've have the order in by now. :-)

    It's the outside width.

    Than no-thank-you for me. I like rims a bit wider : fewer pinchflats, better low-psi stability, etc. Those things count for me as my trails allow for low psi.

    It's an aerodynamics-specific road wheelset, it seems. Stiff because of the short spokes and tall rim, but not light or in my book good for wider tires.
    Some love their 19mm Speedcities, though, and that's just fine. If people's preferences would not differ, we could all trade bikes and not notice.

    I'm sure there great. Just cant see spending $550.00 on them when I can get custom for the same $'s. If they were $400.00 to $450.00 I think they would be a great alternative to the Bontrager prebuilts.
