DT-Swiss R 1.1

1600gm is pretty heavy :!:

With the Euro at 1.28, that's US$832.00...expensive for such heavy wheels. :shock:

Ok, Weight is including skewers, but still... and they are low profile :(

I see no reason that this will be a megaseller :roll:

If one of those magasins they advertise in, gives them a good rating in some 'test', they will sell... trust me... I work in a bikeshop and when one of those crappy magasins does an article about some new part, some customers can't wait to order one...
