For those, looking for a good quality replacement wheel set, check this out.

On the web site, it says $199.- but when I stepped in the store, it was selling $100.- As you can see it's not a run of the mill 32 generic spoke wheels. Wheels seem to be in very good quality, and light.
I asked, "Are you sure, this is a price for the set, not a wheel?" Answer, "No"
"Is this the same wheel set you are advertizing at $199.- on your web site?" Answer, "Yes."
I was extremely tempted get a set but I found that I will also need a new cassette cog and shifter and possibly new derailluer. But I'm still tempted, maybe I'll bring in my bike to have mechanic take a look and see if there is a way to get around.
The price seems to be effective only at the store, not on line store. Only to those who are lucky enough to live near Supergo store.

Nice find.
FYI ... The number of spokes has nothing to do with it. If it did, then these wouldn't be such exceptional wheels.

Those look exactly like the Performance Titans ($199 set) and the Neuvation M28 Aeros ($249 set) - which I had a pair of and was very pleased with. Taiwan made by hand, decent quality and badged for whatever company buys them.

If these are the same wheels and they can be purchased for $100 for the set, I'd jump all over that.

I was aware of Performance Titan wheels, but I didn't ask if they are the same with different names. Quite possibly, they are. You can find so may parts with store brand names, and they are compatible. I bought Nashbar brand clipless pedals and bought an extra set of cleat at Performance. They fit with no problem.

Understand that Performance owns Supergo.......then they very well might be the same wheels.

Performance also owns Nashbar.
