seen these featured on bikes on a few youtube videos (mostly yanks I must admit)

read up on them on a few forums, opinion seems split down the middle like marmite - people either love them or hate them.

cue lots of "errorspoke" comments etc 8)

I kind of like how they look but they seem damn expensive. Also I see some people running one only on the front wheel. Why?

Any comments/advice appreciated, don't shoot me down in flames :wink:

IMO they look crap on a mtb. dt spokes are the best for mtb.

I'm reading they are very heavy too, which is not what I wanted

They are a classic example of style over content. Avoid them.
