If anyone said, "Hey, can I get a little help here?" that would be the correct answer.
Before anyone gets excited about stealing photo's, my wife just ordered two, so our conscience is clear.

Nice pic! You look good. I feel like that everytime I get into a pace line and Im makign up other peoples turns. Now do us all a favor and sell those dam 420s and get some safer wheels :D

me (the pawls stopped engaging 11 mi from home -- rather than trash my carbon-soled DMT's, I started walking in my socks; finally got my wife to pick me up after 2-3 miles), they've been great (sent them back, they replaced the hubs). I've raced them a few times now, and they're good. They wind up real fast, have remained true, etc. They're incredibly light.
I guess I've heard that some people have experienced spokes cracking the hub and pulling out -- is that what you're talking about? Supposedly they've fixed most of these issues.
ouch, but mine are OKweiwentg

I probably got my wheels (with those hubs and ritchey rims) after you did. hubs have been a-ok thus far. my guess is that you are right - their QC issues have been fixed.

Wire tie the big cog to the spokes, don't coast, beats walking. Wire tie = ? 5 grams each?3
