    truth. but at least those serve a purpose on the track. aerojoke serves no purpose and rev x is dangerous (debatable)

    Wait, what? You're given the choice of trading a wheelset for a fork, wheelset and stem? Also,

    Huh? You're reaching pretty hard even if I halfway get where you're going. My best guess is this dude isn't gonna/doesn't know anything about track racing btw.

    im not sure ive ever seen a picture of a failed late rev-x. ive got both an early and a late set left over from my parents racing days and there is a notable difference. the early set is wall art.(mostly due to high miles) i wouldnt hesitate to ride the late set.

    keep in mind broken due to circumstances that would taco a road wheel does not = failure. you also have to remember these came from a day when composite wheels were legal for mass start use. spinergy rev-x wheels were a common sight in professional time trials, road races, triathlons, cyclocross races, and cross country races. despite this high population and rough use there really are not that many pictures of broken wheels out there. (as a percentage of the population)


    yes, i own spinacis as well:

    Which one do you need? Maybe you should consider posting a picture of your bike to get some positive (yeah, something like that) enforcement.

    There were 4 generations. The first 3 were unsafe. Details here.

    slightly on topic: a B43 weighs 90g less than an entire spinergy wheel.

    so you are trading a wheel built with a b43, not just a b43 rim. is that correct?
