Where can I get information on any of these products? My Local bike shop cannot povide me with any info so I have to do the legwork myself. I cannot find any info on the Winium rims-I want to know how much they cost per rim, as I want to build a lightweight set of wheels.
As for the Spada hubs, do they have a website? Does anyone know what the weight is for the front and rear hubs?
I was interested in the AX-lightness carbon brakeset, but I noticed that they do not have the quick release notch that the Advanced Pro carbon brakeset has, which I prefer. Do they have a website? Who can I order a set from? Is the company reputable?
I know-I am asking alot of questions. but the guys on this site seem to really know alot about these things, so thanks in advance for all the help!!!! :D
I have a Calfee Dragonfly and I want to build a ightweight yet functional road bike.

Try www.spadabike.it there are hub weights listed that seem to be accurate (I have wheels with his hubs.

I don't think Corima sell the Winium as a rim, but Spada has a 1050gm wheelset made with them and his hubs which I have on order for January delivery. Campy use the same rim in the Hyperion tubular.

AX-Lightness is imported by Calfee.

I am sorry.

I don't know the delivery time of these brakes.

I hope that they will be avaiable in January 2004.

They are cool, I want to buy them.

But I want to know the net price and the real weight.

Bye
