Does anyone have a picture. 40 grams lighter than the SL's only 5000 worldwide. All silver spokes except 1 yellow spoke and they come with wheelbags and titanium quick releases. Serial numbered as well.

I have heard about these for about a month now from my LBS's but wanted to see a picture first before I said yes.
had not heard of them - interesting nmDougSloan

... using a Scotchbrite on all but one spoke and a bit of yellow paint (you guys wouldn't tell... would you)?

Be the bike.
maybe the 40gr come from not painting the spokes. nmBruno S

After I get my set its going to be a long wait for Dura-ace 10 speed. Then I am finished upgrading...... hopefully.

Sigh.

Maybe they're a fetish item BUT I WANT THEM FOR MY TCR.

Wife, what say you?

Wife: We have creditors that scream like no other.

Me: I thought so.

Okay, back to reality and my CXP21s on 105 hubs.
not worth the $$$C-40

When you can get regular SL for $600 and Campy Neutron or Eurus for even less.
this isn't about "worth the $$$" :) nmweiwentg

I'm pretty sure that the regular 04 version will be silver as well sans yellow spoke though. Soon there should also be a new Cosmic Elite silver anodized 30mm semi-aero wheelset available too.

I wonder if this means the SSC SL's from this year will be
closed out at bargain prices? I'd like to get them in black
since they would match the black trim on my bike. At the
same time, silver would look nice too.

Someday.......
