Knew the US Dollar weak but what the ..

Heck. Here is a rear Italian made rear wheel http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...el.aspx?cc=TWD

The matching front is only half the price of the rear.

Somethings gone goofball.

They've got Deore/Rhynolites for $3,133 per set. That's about $3,000 more than Performance sells them for.

Hi,

I'm guessing the site has been hacked.

I agree with Cleave and suspect the hack may well have been accomplished by developers who decided (or were forced) to skip a step or two. Businesses tend to respond to external hacks by going black until they can determine the full extent of the damage.

Too bad they didn't make an error in the other direction. I could sure use a set for $34.95; in fact, I might even stock up!

At that price- I am surprised it's not Bontrager branded.

I wanted to see if the cart would break if it went over 999,999. Heh. Only got to 196,000 so far.

But in the cart display, I saw it was displaying $TWD. changing to $USD fixes everything. (googled TWD and found it is Taiwan dollars)

Hey--the oilman link to the wheels has cc=TWD in it, so that's how the currency got switched.

That Eurus wheel was $18,518. I just emailed Jenson to see if they would do a price match for $18,515 I saw on another site.

After we go through the period of hyper-inflation that is on the horizon these price might not seem so bad.

Just last week I scored a set of SRAM X.9 twist shifters from them at $39. That was a pretty good price. Now if they'd just move a Noir crankset down to about $69 it would be a good summer for parts.
