Does any out there know anything about these wheels??
I am currently riding Mavics but am going to buy another set of wheels.
These look like pretty decent wheels however I can find no info on the construction or durability of the wheels. I know they make diffrent ones are any better than the others?
I saw some guys the other day with these wheels on some cannondales.

good trainingwheels, but a bit on the heavy side for racing

Had a chance to try out a pair of the Grecal Parade wheels.
They are on the heavy side, heavier than my Record/OpenPro by a good 250g.
The ride was a bit stiff for my liking, but felt very good in a tight curve.
Bearing quality felt excellent, as good as any production wheelset I have ever tried.
They had bladed spokes on it as well, might be tough to find.
Given the price (-$450), I am going to stick to Record/CXP-33 for an areo set of wheels.
I love Giepiemme stuff (got a saddle from them) but availablity of spares is a problem.
