Cees' policy for the re-manufactured wheels is actually very reasonable.
The guarantee for the new wheels is, in the event that you damage the wheels in a way that is not repairable, then Cees will sell you a new wheel for 50% of the price of the original wheel. Obviously, if you only paid 50% of the price of a new wheel to begin with, he is not wanting to provide a new wheel for only 25% of the cost of a new wheel. You would basically have to pay the 50% of the new wheel for another re-manufactured wheel.
Even better, Carbonsports (manufacturers of the Lightweight wheels that you speak of) offers a guarantee allowing you to purchase a new wheel at only 30% of the cost of a new wheel.
You don't get a new one fom Carbonsports for 30%, but they offer a 30% discount on a new one in case your wheel is beyond repair, thus you have to pay 70% of the list price.
When you do these calculations you have to take into account that Lightweights cost only 50% of the ADAs in the first place (for reasons unclear to me, but that's another story).
But as Geoff says, crashing a wheel is not something that should happen too often, and both manufacturers policy is better than that of many other companies.
Geoff, have fun riding your wheels and be sure to let us know how they ride!
