    No, I'm not getting a set, I like my Mavics too much.

    Looks like a Tri bike wheel.

    Wonder what you do if they get warped? Although im assuming the point is they dont do that.

    Are these supposed to be for DH/FR? They weigh a ton! Man, I'd need a shuttle and a beer to get those to the top of a hill...

    Yup, that's what I thought of too. We used to call 'em "mags".

    Never bothered with them on my GT Interceptor...

    Well to me a 2,700 gram wheelset will never look impressive to me, no matter how much carbon they are made of.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    You took the words right out of my mouth! Skyway's still making wheels, but no 26s . I know you're probably being facetious, but think about it: indestructible, no more broken spokes, flat spots, etc. etc. I've been waiting for someone to show up with something like this for FR/DH.

    I know! We used to have one of these on the farm - genuine 20" Tuff II's as OE.

    Oh wow, I had a set in yellow when I was 14 bashing around on a BMX.

    26" Tuffs would be way lighter than 26" Motomags, that is for sure. I'd also like to see Tioga bring back the 26" CompIII's. I've been tempted to buy a NOS pair off my LBS for sometime now.

    Yes they made 24", and they still do. Like last year, or something they brought back both the 20" and 24" in white.
