I am posting a pic of my Tsunami purchased from chucksbikes.com last January. I have now passed the 1,000 mile mark on it and am glad to report this is a great bike.

My racing tri bike is a Trek Y-Foil and my club racing bike is a Litespeed Tuscany. The Tsunami is mainly used as a daily tri trainer. It is great.

If you are need an extra bike or an inexpesive frame to hang your extra parts on, get one!

Sorry the pic is so big, I thought it may be helpful to someone interested in seeing some details.

That site is brutal, one of the greatest smear campaigns in the my memory (thanks internet).

I have no idea why it is given such credibility. I know lots of riders who use those wheels and no one has sliced their arm or leg off, or suffered for gigantic spontanous failure.

Enjoy your bike

I know of one local accident involving the use of spinergy's such as pictured. It involved a large amount of mtn climbing and descending...I suspect 1) rims had been previously damaged 2)excessive heating from much descending and breaking by a heavy rider and 3)if the brake pads arent lined up on brake surface, they will damage the wheel by overheating, Spinergy warned of that in original info. All wheels can fail. I read of a pro triathlete, female, who had a wreck from a broken spoke and impaled herself on the spoke...
