Does anyone know what brand is this wheel?

Its suppose to be Ritchey wheels, but I cannot find one with the 8 spoke pattern.

I have been searching shimano and cannot find the 8 spoke design.

I have even looked road wheels in general and cant find ANY brand with the style.

It could be a discontinued design.

It looks like the "Sweet Sixteen" wheels made by Shimano for Santana Tandems. They been out about 4 or 5 years now but I think you can only get them at Santana and only if you buy a tandem. www.santanatandem.com
