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

I heard from a co-worker that reynolds had a 900g disk on display at the wildflower triathlon this year. Has anyone else heard anything about it?

steve hed helped the reynolds guys out with it. he's too nice for his own good. think of it as the perfect combination between a zipp and a hed disc wheel and you'll get the reynolds. light but a great lenticular shape.

the only down side i have on it is the freehub. it uses a similar if not the same edco freehub as the zipp (and many others) . i guess it's cheap and they can switch from campy to shimano quite easily. the edco freehub has a tonne of drag to it. if you stop pedalling it's like putting on a brake. if you pedal backward on a bike stand not only will it stop a wheel from spinning but will accelerate it in the opposite direction. if you are ok with a zipp though you'll be ok with the reynolds.

Doesn't matter. You should be pedalling all the time anyway, unless you're braking into a turn. In which case the drag will save your brake blocks a bit!
