After the first recall, having the editor in chief for VeloNews go down due to spoke failure can't be good for the system in general...

I got a quick estimate of my bling scummers value today. When i said, Oh, mine must be worth more because i have the fulcrum zero's on...he said no way the tarmac has these uber expensivo carbon spoked wheels, which are more expensive than your's!....anyway, i wondered about this very scenario...glad i have the porn red el cheapo blades!

I know a few people that have bought bikes with these wheels, now I know why they sold off the wheels & replaced them before using the bike.
I even considered buy a set from them, glad I didn't after reading that story.
