Velocity Fusion rear wheel - $109.95 at Nashbar: $99 with 10% off coupon.Eug

It retails for US$170, but today I noticed it was $110. Until last week it was $150. There's also a 10% off coupon (TKM4 - until June 3), bringing the price of this wheel to less than US$100. Sure, it ain't an ultralight boutique wheel, but for that price it'd make a decent backup wheel for training or commuting.

"Although not quite as aerodynamic as the Deep V rim, Velocity cut the Fusion's weight by almost 80 grams while still retaining most of the Deep V's strength and lateral stiffness. The 25 mm tall rim is then laced to Velocity low maintenance, sealed bearing hubs using double butted, 14 gauge, stainless steel spokes. 32 hole cross 3. 9/8 speed Shimano compatible. The rims are a double wall design and include machined sidewalls to ensure consistent and even braking. Each Fusion wheel is hand built and trued in the US to the highest tolerances in the cycling industry. Drilled for presta valves."
