Was Gerrans ever put in this thread?

And the cool backstory...
http://www.cyclingtips.com.au/2012/09/b ... ni-rb1000/
"I bought the Lightweights from Simon Gerrans. They were the wheels he rode at the Beijing Olympics where he was allowed to ride on whatever wheel’s he wanted. Rather than the team wheels, he choose Lightweights. As Baden Cooke said, “they give a unfair advantage”. So when Simmon offered them to a group of us at a BBQ I bagged them before he finished the sentence.

The funny thing is that last year I loaned them to Matty Lloyd for the Australian National Championships. Gerro won, Matty came second on Gerro’s wheels. If it had been the reverse I might have had a bit of explaining to do. "
