Been trying to two days to contact any living soul at Spinergy...they go out of business? I have hit a dozen answering machines, leave messages, get generic emails from them. NO LIVING HUMANS!

They moved to Carlsbad CA from the northeast it seems...is there some California holiday I dont know about??

With the 4 spoke outlawed (their only real big seller) and wheels like the Spox failing miserably (although I have a pair and like them) none of their wheels really set them apart anymore. Competing with big marketing budgets and the backgrounds of companies like Mavic, Shimano and Campy there just doesn't seem to be enough room for them.

I remember the Rev-X as being a must have wheel for every amateur racer. But I thought the reason they aren't around anymore is because people finally realized they were heavy, bad in crosswinds, expensive, and none too durable nor reliable.

Who outlawed them? Are they not allowed in pro or amateur races in the U.S.?
