Mario gave us a rear wheel a while ago to fix it... It was an Edco hub... don't know what rim it was... might have been a Corima, but I'm not sure... not even sure if it was his wheel... might have been from a friend or team mate...

They are from Cattoir, he uses his own rims which are made by Corima with Edco hubs or the hubs you give him

No, you have to ask him, but I don't think he will make them to export the wheels to Spain.

http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=550&start=30 has a list of light weight wheels, though I am unable to find Spada on the web.

The American Classic 350 appears to be the best value of money at 1320g and $800. http://www.amclassic.com/350_Wheels.html

AC Mag 300 weighing 1207g cost $995 http://www.amclassic.com/Mag_300_Wheels.html

Anyone else shopping for a price competitive lightweight wheelset?

Brian

@Ye Olde Balde One
not with the actually Alex rims, isn´t it? The rims are 400g front and 430 rear, and stiffer than the AC 350?

Is it really $100 extra for X-ray spokes?

Are the 350s stiff enough for You?
I will get mine lighter, and I don´know ,AC or my old Araya ctl 370?
The second wheelset i will build with the magnesium rims ( when they are strong enough for marathons ins the alps )

drew, retail price on cx-ray spokes is around $2... you do the math... they are cool spokes, but pricey...

$700 for the weight is very good. Has anyone used/owned a pair?

The spoke number concerns me a little, but the price is right.
