|What is the link to the company that makes the ADA-wheels??
Are they really so wonderful that most seem to think?? could wheels that weight 1 kilo/pair really hold up?

|the link is:
the wheels are durable and light, but not as stiff as you may want them to be - check this out:
compare ada (20 sp front, 510g / 20 sp rear, 642g) to say, campy nucleons (22fr, 680g/22rear, 909g):
front wheel deflection: ada 2.11mm - campy 1.98mm
rear whee deflection: ada 3.02mm - campy 1.96mm
german-made lightweight wheels (http://www.lightweightwheels.com/, cost around 3600 DM) are very similar to ada (cost ~2950 Euro), but only available with shimano compatibility.

|the only people that can afford these wheels are sponsored racers or people with WAY too much $ to spend on bike stuff. I dount if they hold up like a conventional wheelset, but that's really not what they are for. they are race-only wheels that are designed to be ultra light and fast.|

|2950 euros, what's that?? a piss in the ocean :·)
no, seriously, i was youst courios and without to much work for the moment.
But it is a intresting thought, just by changing wheels i can save perhaps as much as 1,5 kilo, and that on the most important place on the bike, the feeling of that oughta be like your have an engine
|2950 euro's = $2499 ....drop in the bucket||PaulCL|
