new wheelset has arrived...(10 posts)

new wheelset has arrived...CrazyMan

Ok, first let me say I'm sorry I can't give details about the wheels. Promised the manufacturer I would not, as they haven't been released yet. And I'm not trying to be a tease, but I can give you the following info:
Wheelset comes in at under 1400 grams (without skewers), looks sick, has a 25.5mm depth (same as the Ksyriums), clinchers, and don't cost all that much (again, less than the Ksyriums). They are regularly serviceable, too. Again, sorry I can't give more info, and no I am not with some company trying to generate mysterious hype, but I'm excited at the possibility of a great wheelset for a moderate-ish price.
I'll post a ride report on the No-Name Wheels shortly, so that should give more info than just what's on paper.
Now that's a wasted post! nmtorquecal

Many tubular wheelsets are lighter than 1400g.

AC 350 clinchers already weigh less than 1400g per set w/out skewers. AC hubs with IRC Cadence rims, butted spokes and alloy nipples are also under 1400g for <$400.

Unless those mysterious wheels are less than $350 and built strong or look really snazzy, what's the hype?
