Is this wheel TOO cheap???CharlesTT

This wheel is very tempting. The only thing that bothers me is the same thing the makes me want it, the price. Its only $320 but i am just not sure about the quality. Does anyone think that this wheel would fall apart after 3 rides or is it a real deal. The whole Nomex carbon thing is similer to what LA's TT bike is made of, so that should be cool. Somebody respond something, any feedback would be good.

that does seem really cheap. the zipp and corima ones are all carbon, but this one has aluminium at the rim; maybe that's why it's cheap, but the weight isn't too bad...

go to the slowtwitch.com forum. Everyone there raves about them, and the owner of renn even posts there occasionally. They are excellent wheels, at a fantastic price.
There is nothing wrong with Aluminum Breaking SurfaceCharlesTT

All of the most popular discs in european pro races have an aluminum breaking surface, becuase they break better. The mavic comete disc, and Campy Ghibli disc have an aluminum breaking surface.
