Does anyone know something about these wheels? They come stock on the 2003 Cannondale R 800 and Im kinda curious since I will buy a new bike and I dont wanna buy a new wheel set straight away...

One of the LBS's carries these, I have to say, they are pretty nice. Bearings are very smooth (almost Record smooth) and they are not too heavy for an aero set of rims (4.5 pounds for the set). Bladed spokes too.
They go for about $450 mail order, so they are not cheap wheels.
(give ya $100 for em if you dont like them ;-))

Thanks a lot!

I was a bit worried about the hubs and the total weight, but since you have seen them I guess I can sleep at night again...:) 450? Thats a lot of buck for a wheel set coming stock on a 2003 Cannondale R 800 (105/truvativ/elita/coda brakes/caad5), isnt it?
