Given the number of spokes, I suppose Frischi uses some custom made "Ritchey" carbon wheels?

Ok, thx. I won't be able to attend the Zonhoven cross, but I might come and see you later this winter. Do you have a website with your program? Otherwise, feel free to mail/pm it to me. :wink:

Looks very much like a Spooky carbon brakeset that Svend Nys is using. Is sold her http://www.store.yahoo.com/cyclocrosswo ... rbrak.html but not available at the moment - looks really nice and pretty light (212 grams for front and rear).

BTW - when remembering back: Wasn't Svend Nys last name once spelled Nijs? Think they spelled his name like this a couple of years ago at eurosport!

Cyclocrossworld.com is also out of stock. I really dig my Spookys(tho I have the aluminum version, not carbon).

I bought sets of Spooky carbon brakes for my bikes at Math Salden in the Netherlands. The ship to other countries too. Euro 169.00

I saw Niels Albert had similar brakes with the 4ZA logo (a Ridley owned brand). :wink:

last year's 4za brakes looked like spooky alu, now the 4za brakes are exactly the same like empella froglegs. spooky is as far as i know the only carbon brake out there. nys and groenendal were the first riders with spooky carbon parts(brakes and chain disc)in 2002.
