    Gray carbon 5.0 clinchers??

    I have been looking all over the www for some user reviews of the Gray 5.0 carbon clinchers and have come up empty handed. I have seen a few sets on Ebay for a seemingly good price (approx. $1100 delivered). Has anyone had any experience with them? I'm trying to stay in a $1000 budget for some carbon clinchers in about the 45mm-55mm profile range. So far the 2011 Reynolds Assaults are at the top at the list. I found a set for $1000 delivered. I can't stand the new decals on the Reynolds, but I do like the improved features of the 2011 model, i.e. new braking surface. I figure I can swap out the stickers if need be.

    Welcome all thoughts...

    By "gray", do you mean "black"? Sorry, not trying to be an a@@, just haven't noticed "gray" specifically. If black, then check out these from Boyd's:

    These are getting a lot of attention right now, Price/weight tough to beat.

    Also, PSIMET wheels are always a great option. Custom built to your needs. His base carbon clinchers with Novatech hubs I believe are $800.

    There's a brand named "Gray". Heavy overpriced carbon clinchers.

    Gray Carbon Clinchers 5.0

    Dray,

    How do you find the Gray Carbon Clinchers 5.0 ?
    I just saw your old post. I'm considering to buy same wheels as a colleague selling his second hand (hardly used). Any feedback is welcome.

    Thanks,

    Those look like standard China/Taiwan rims w/ Novatech hubs as well. I'm still curious about the model of buying from an importer (w/ markup) versus buying direct.
