    Those never seemed all that great to me. Read mediocre reviews of them int he past. $130 for one wheel on the net should be a pretty nice wheel, so doesnt seem like a good deal to me.

    You could get a better equipped and similarly priced set of wheels @ ben's cycle.

    ah, well for a set, I guess the price is good. I'm assuming they will roll, but not the lightest setup!
