Well I did it, I broke down and bought a new wheelset. As a response to my posting yesterday Bruno suggested I take my wheel in to get it relaced. Well as soon as the guy at the shop saw the wheel that was his suggestion also. Being that recently my life has been consumed with getting a new wheel set, I made the mistake of saying, “what are my other options”. Sales people love this. Well he said, What ever you want I will give to you at cost. I have this set of 99 model Open Pros with Ultegra hubs that I will let you have for $166.00. Nope not good enough, hey what about the Cosmos, I said. Well I can let you have those for $220.00. I have been looking at Cosmos for the last month and a half. Why do 220 sound so much more expensive then 166? Well after an hour of the guys telling me that the two sets of rims are pretty much the same outside the fact the Cosmos are a cool blue and others are bland silver, I broke down and bought the Cosmos. Get this on the way out I picked up my old rim and the new back rim and walked out leaving the front rim at the store. I can be such an idiot some times.

I didn't put in the #8220 and #8221. It must be the new system
