Look uncannily similar, don't they? Is there more to this than meets the eye?

I second that. Cees Beers is the master of plageurism. He runs a bike lockup at a train station and screws around with wheels in his free time.

Lightweight is the ONLY way to go.

I'd heard the rumours, but did not want to pre-empt the result. But some of the pros look like they're using ADAs not Lightweights, indeed I think I see the ADA brand on David Millar's Worlds RR bike. Surely they would know good from copy!

They were several test of both wheels...and the ADAs suck..they arent as stiff as the lightweights not even good in aerodynamics... ohh and there weight sucks indeed badly.
The cosmic carbon of mavic are better as the ADA...and thats a "poser" Wheelset...:)
