Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Kind of madfibre, kind of Corima, kind of Mavic, kind of Lighweight (maybe?) bit of a mixture really but under 1000gms apparently

The spokes are interesting. Standard metal spoke with an airfoil shaped carbon fairing around them.

I think the wheels are interesting looking.
Ladies think Cippolini is interesting looking.
But are they simply a nice looking package filled with questionable additives?
Who will jump and post a real-world review?

Nice, but the price is as high as Corima MCC. So I prefer Corima.
