Does anyone have any opinions on the nes Spinergy Tilium Carbon wheels? Performance has them on sale, but I am leery of Spinergy products. How do they compare to Nimble or X-Lab?
$900?!pmf1

Come on ... if you really want to blow that kinda money on wheels go with a company with a better track record. If I were looking to spend ~1K, I'd look hard at some Zipp wheels.

I have some Spinergy wheels (Rev-X, Xaero) and they're OK, but nothing great. I think Spinergy is more about hype than sound wheel building. They don't develop stuff, they buy it off other people.

Personally, I think there are a lot of lighter, aero wheels out there for almost half that price. Hell, you could have some built (Velocity rims, bladed spokes, fancy hubs of choice) for half that, or less.

not crap, some people are just ignorant (like those that posted in this thread). The rims are solid and teh new hubs are also.
