Does anyone know anything about the Amer. Classic Carbon wheelset. I know they use Zipp rims (303's I think). They are claimed to be ~1000g. I already have a micro front hub on a set of wheels and like it. Has anyone used the rear cassette hub from am classic. They are a killer deal for ~$800 a set and am classic has great custom service. So.............. what do you guys/girls think

1000g is for the 650c wheels. i have the 20/24 set that weighs in at 1108. however the rear wheel doesnt stay true. 4 other of my teammates also have them and they cant keep em true either.
sucks to have to rebuild a 800$ wheelset.

also expect at least 1 month lag between order and arrival.
