I was just brousing the site. I've got a set of tubular zipps I'm growing tired of. Tubulars are annoying and not worth the hassles in my opinion. Although I'm glad I tried them, I would get something else now. I was day dreaming earlier about selling my zipps on e-bay, buying these and still have money left over for other goodies.

The CR420s are very similar, just a small weight penalty, and much cheaper. When you compare these wheels with the competition they are really nice.

there's a short thread on this wheelset on the Serotta message board. One reviewer seems to like them
If I had only 1 wheel set I'd go with the 350'sTig

First, the 350's are only $470 per set. They are only slightly lighter (just 1372 grams) than the 420's (1420 grams) so that doesn't matter. I just don't have the extra $ right now. Maybe that's the real difference for me. I'd go with an aero set like Zipp 404's or the 420's if I had a semi-aero workhorse set already, since my rides are usually windy and those big 34mm rims hate cross wind gusts. Still, $595 for such a well made wheel on American Classic hubs is hard to beat. Build the custom 16 front, 20 rear with bladed spokes at 1458 grams, and these would smoke Mavic K's!
my 350's are 1323 (less QR's) and were $384 shipped...IAmtnbikr

from http://oddsandendos.com. Check out his website. Excellent to deal with. Front is 569g and rear is 754g. Front is 28 hole, laced with Wheelsmith XL radially. Rear is 28 hole, laced 2x non-drive with XL's, drive is 3x DB's. $100 less than AC, and a quality build too!
THANKS! -nmTig
