Vuelta Corsa SLR wheels?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That rounds up to about a pound for $220, or down to 9/10ths of a pound for $217.
Just be careful. A lot of companies play games with weights. Even Campy often list the weight of the Campy setup back wheel not the Shimano setup which adds upto a 100 grams.

In my case a rather large pipe wrench in combination with a chain whip was needed. I was (am?) still interested in replacing the freehub body. I searched in vain for a replacement. Ordered one online and it didn't fit. I even enlisted 2 buddies from 2 different lbs and still couldn't find the correct replacement part. Those wheels were fun for a while but they became a nightmare.

Yeah, what I thought would be a football turned into a hamster. Or rounded up, a gerbil.

My front SLR broke a second nipple today. I think I corroded them indoor training and leaving puddles on the floor. Mechanic said it was too many watts though.
