    Bladed spokes and Neuvation R Tubular Wheels

    My new Scott Addict is the first real bike I have ever owned without tubular wheels. In fact, I have quite a few tubular tires left over from the days of old that I would like to use on the Scott.

    I'm cheap, or maybe just poor. Neuvation R Tubular wheels look like the way to go. I could even just purcahse a rear and use an existing tubular front wheel. Yeah, it would look odd.

    I have been riding bladed spokes or Alpina oval section spokes since forever. The Neuvation R's appear to only have round spokes. Silly, I am sure, but is there anything at a similar price point and weight with bladed spokes?

    Thanks for your insight . . .

    Aren't they clinchers? Remember, I am hoping to "use up" some of my tubular tire inventory.

    Find some Easton EA70X wheels...
    Round spokes, but they are pretty bulletproof and can be had for >$400 shipped.

    Thanks. I saw those on Speedgoat http://www.speedgoat.com/product.asp...t=49&brand=342

    But, as you say, "round spokes". Still looking for the bladed bling.

    Doh, sorry. You'd think I could remember the first part of the post by the time I got to the end

    If the R tubular rims have the same ERD as the R28 clinchers, you'd think John could build them with the same bladed spokes as the Aero4's. Couldn't hurt to ask, right?

    No worries! I'm probably way older than you and really understand . . .

    Sounds like a job for Super-Email-Man . . . I'm on it!

    Communicating that to the workers in China and waiting for the boat to arrive could be a problem though.
