Carbon wheels

1st post newbie :]

Since everyone seems to be praising the Reynolds Stratus wheels, I am considering to be getting myself a pair.
But I still do have two little question:
Why do they only use Sapim's Laser spokes instead of the CX-Ray (better aerodynamics w/o weight penalty)?!
Don't the two caps at the rim's valve stem and the opposite side negatively effect the aerodynamics as well?

Other wheels on my list would be the Corima Aero (weight penalty), or the Corima Medium (about the same as the Stratus just w/ CX Ray spokes).

Oh, or is there by chance any shop that might have a set of Lightweights in stock - wouldn't want to be waiting an eternity for my wheels. :roll:

They use Cx-ray in the Stratus wheels ! (execpt driveside - here they use a round spoke for max. stifness) This is new for 2004 - Cirro is with round sapim spokes...

...or try Sigma Sport in the UK. That's where I got my Lightweights and I saw a pair in the shop this afternoon:
