Yeah. Seems that the entire line of Roval wheels is that way. I can get them EP though, so it's much easier to justify. That and it seems like they are always cheaper than MSRP on eBay.

Do you have any pictures of that? I'd be really curious to see it, especially on an aluminum hoop.

I was thinking about a pair of those, too.

Or I could just buy a new lever. That's not really the point though. I have nothing to loose by trying this, really.

As far as I know, they did not come with carbon wheels in 2008, so your guess was a good one. The carbon clinchers are probably the only difference between $6500/$7000 and $8000.
