SOUL S3.0SL wheels...

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

SOUL S3.0SL wheels...

Think I've made my decision on a new wheel-set. Had a nice correspondence with Sean at Soul. Anyone got pics of the S3.0SL's on a bike? Would love to see them on a rig. Thanks...

I have a pair of 3.0SL's being shipped right now. Red nipples and red hubs. They should be here any day now. I'll post pics and true weights when I get them.

I neglected to mention I also chose the hybrid ceramic bearings (+$100). I think the hubs and nipples were +$20 each so the final cost to me, including shipping, was $610. I'm excited to see how they look on my bike. That said, those S4.0's look hot!

thanks! i must say i am very impressed with the quality of the souls. i've really been riding them lately. they are actually on my Merlin right now. the roads around here suck lately, they still havent repaired all the damage this terrible winter inflicted on the roads, so i've taken these things over some pretty rough pavement. they are still dead true. hubs spin beautifully, they make a nice hum, quieter than campy hubs, but more noticeable than shimano.

i'm sure you will both be very pleased. i also found sean to be very easy to work with.
