i think the lw simunek used is the second set that belongs to richard niewhuis(dugast). my friend brought it to zeddam and richard picked them up at our hotel. he gives these wheels to several riders at important races(franzoi, sebastian langeveld rode the worlds with them, and the list goes on...). at the beginning this second set was ment to be a set of ventoux, but cs say that it will be mid year or so when they get available.

Slightly off-topic: what's his saddle-to-bar drop? It looks minute... :?

what does "minute" mean? that bar and saddle are on the same height? if so, it could be that the pic is taken at the muur d'huy, it's sometimes 24% steep there, they said in tv. this makes it look different/wierd.

Minute as in small, diminutive. Not very pro-ish :)

Could be the photo angle indeed.

Some new life in this old thread :wink:
I noticed on tv that Hondo rode LW wheels in Rund um den Henninger Turm last monday. Maybe somebody has found a better picture? I'm pretty sure I saw a few more riders on LW's as well. I think I spotted Johan Coenen on a set as well?
