Lew is now w/Reynolds. RZR wheelset <900g

I bumped into this when I was checking the specs on the Bonktown deal for the Reynolds DV3KT for $1k. (not as good a deal IMO as another Reynolds wheelset BTown once offered made w/DT Swiss hubs also for $1k)

Anyway saw this: Sub 900g wheelset - Reynold's RZR 46. LOTS of carbon including the hub and spokes.

More than $4K?

I don't think you understand how cool those wheels are. They're really, really, really, really, very cool. Alot.

so the spokes are replaceable. Question is, if one fails, does the rest of the wheel hang around so you can replace it?
