Have you read the interviews with the old and new Lightweight owners on the Weight Weenies homepage?
I found it very interesting to hear about the "real ADA/Lightweight story".
I also like the fact that Mr. Obermayer is involved in the new company and will work on improvements and new developments.

@admin: When will the other interview be translated?

Does anyone know if carbonsports plans on ramping up production? I know that they said that one of their goals was to decrease their delivery times, but are they on a pull-system? (by this I mean made to order only)

Yes, production is already ramped up.
Current order queue is still 4-5 months, but they estimate that even in the future the delivery time won't drop below 2-3 months.

It's still pure handwork:
before Dierl & Obermayer were working alone in their garage,
now high qualified employees are producing them in an professional environment, which doesn't make the manufacturing costs cheaper.
Making one single wheel still takes about 9 working hours.

And keep in mind: the price is 2/3 of the price for ADA wheels.

Oh right, I assumed the process might've been more automated.
