    This just in. Setting a silly high "retail" price, then discounting it to what the wheel is really worth works better than setting the retail price low to begin with.

    Next week...water is wet.

    The extra 25% off sale was a 2 days sale(6th and 7th) celebrating Nashbar 40th anniversary in business, not just to mark it down from marking it up then discounting it to make it look appealing. I took advantage of the extra 25% and brought some Pearl Izumi road shoes, LG bike shorts and 2 Nashbar spare tubes@$2.69 a piece.

    NYC_CAAD, code was nb40. You can try to see if it still works.

    I believe the retail price is set by reynolds, not nashbar. At $2800 and purchasing it for a tad over $1k is an awesome deal. They are last years models, but still a great value.

    I am seeing a lot of deals on high end wheels at the moment since the wheels are not compatible with the new 11 speed Shimano cassettes.

    actually, check that, i hear what you say about "msrp." problem is, the msrp is actually what the wheel costs if you go looking for it anywhere else, maybe a little less now that it's last year's model. IF you can find em...

    actually the higher end models from Reynolds using DTswiss hubs are all upgradeable to 11speed. It's $79.99 for a freehub.

    You can order directly from Reynolds or purchase online.

    Another reason why the reynolds are going pretty low is that all 2013 models using the DT Swiss hubs have switched to straight pulls.

    Thanks! I have been holding off on purchasing wheels because I did not want to get obsolete hubs.

    Carbon Clinchers?Are They Ready for Prime Time? : Red Kite Prayer

    They are dumping these now because of the huge issues that reynolds had with their carbon clinchers failing. All carbon clinchers have problems with heat and braking, but the failure rate of this particular run is higher than that of others.

    The wheels on this thread are tubulars.

    Honestly, I have never had a single problem with Reynolds tubulars. I have melted their clinchers (45) though. I had a great experience with the 32 clinchers. I've owned maybe 8 pairs of Reynolds, so I know a bit about them. Melted a set of Enve 65s too.

    Kind of a mixed bag. If you can get them for around a grand, that's not bad at all.

    Well the question I pose now since the tread you linked CXinME. They didn't discuss the tube blowing (did i miss it? i skimmed the article) but rather the carbon braking surface delaminating. How is that any different then a carbon tubular? Is it because on a clincher there is extra carbon layers on the braking surface?

    I ride mostly carbon clinchers (reynolds aero and zipp fc) without issues, but I don't have major mountains, just rolling hills. I also have the 46 tubular in case I ever have a long descent.

    These are very tempting deals, but honestly tubulars with internal nipples are a PITA to true. I have a set now and it'll be my last.
