Thanx for your help!

On this very website: http://www.roadbikereview.com/Learncrx.aspx

My speedreams have the black rims, black spokes, and silver campy hubs. Very cool. They don't have big decals on them like K's or Neutrons. I think Dave needs to come up with some decals for advertising.
No, but ...pmf1

I have a pair in black. They look like normal wire wheels, nothing real flashy. The Sapim spokes are thinner than standard DT wire spokes, the American Classic hubs look a little unique in that the rear hub has a high flange (here is a decent picture -- http://www.encinocyclery.com/id24.htm). The rims are a bit more deep than a Ksyrium, but not much. He says they're Sun, but I can't remember if mine are. I do recall they're made in Australia, which always struck me as odd.

I got a pair over a year ago. They're a pretty good deal for the money. Mine weighed in at 1445 grams (with skewers) -- quite a bit lighter than Ksyriums. Since my 120 lbs. wife has mostly been using them, I can't attest to how strong they are. They corner nicely and have a good ride. So far no problems. If something goes wromg, you don't have to send them back to Mavic for repairs.
