I've been watching these wheels very keenly. For the price, with warranty, they seem like an absolute steal, especially since they are handbuilt in the USA. Though I am not affiliated, I know the wheels will be built in Knoxville, TN. I'll try to get my hands on a set and put up a review. One of my friends loved a set he got to demo. discuss?

I'm wondering if Velocite/Venn is producing the rims.

That site is all sorts of nonsense. Not the least of which is "CNC filament wind construction". No, they are not filament wound.

it seems "filament wound" is the latest buzz word in wheels.

That's some of the worst flange spacing I've ever seen if it's correct.

The Bare BH1-R is our proprietary rear hub built with high quality Carbon Fiber and Aluminum materials. At 217.4 the BH1-R is utilizes a 6 pawl system to lay the foundation for a great performing hub.

Nothing against Bitex, they make some nice hubs. These aren't the ones I'd choose from their lineup though. Not for any reason at all.

They would help there marketing by not publishing the hub geometry. it is quite awful.
