I have a set of the non-disk Zerolites, they hold up better than I thought they would. The bladed spokes need tweaking sometimes, but only once or twice.

If you don't need disks, Nashbar is selling the non-disk ones for $80.

I have a non-disc set on my commuter bike, sitting right outside my office right now.

I got mine at Nashbar for $60 plus shipping. After tensioning, truing, and repacking the hubs they have been great so far for getting around town every day.

I looked at lots of good reviews about them before buying them.

24-hole? Bladed spokes? $120? Why?

Jenson has 32-hole Rhynolites laced to Deore disc hubs for $95
