Ya...the last pair too and it was just before the company terminated all this graphite wheel due to some rumour of how many riders experience total breakage while riding and casuing some serious face-pizza with the road or trail. But I have yet to get any hint of problem with them all this years. ( touch wood) I have bunny hop on them with so much fear but have since could not care less man. heheh...This one is the light weight titanium hubset. From what I heard as a rumour, these later sets were very well re-enforce in a kiasu manner to make up for the rumour and accusation it got but unfortunately the fear that went around during that time....kill this wheel project. Pity really...I would not mind another pair. It has a sweet ride to it. I have a superlight mavix wheelset but somehow I find myself with this set on my bike most of the time.Originally Posted by plinius
And yes I do of course ride the Changi Coastal Road "tour" man. I stay in the East Side too heheh. From Tanjong Rhu to the jetty it is already 8km, then to Tanah Merah it will be about another 5km and then the 10km stretch to Changi Point. And then back down again. It is a great place to ride man...till the cross wind hit you or comes from your front..than you really have to pace yourself or you burn out. In my early days of riding that road before the new jetty, Golf course and more reclamation work...your nightmare is the pack of wild @#$% dogs. So silent they run up to you from the forest and then they jump out from the trail/forest track onto the main road...and they sometime don't bark! I got my share of scare from them man.
