Yeh I would have to buy three also but I would have to use it to beat my wife off with when she found out how much cash I just spent.

I have heard that the older carbon wheels would shatter if you hit any major pot holes, bumps, etc. The new ones are much more forgiving because their weave pattern has been changed to accommodate road use.

Just curious (the only attitude I can afford), how do these and mags do on bumpy roads? I heard some owners refusing to go on anything not close to track quality.
Supposedly the CF wheels are more forgiving and durable than magnesium when it comes to public road conditions

I recently spoke with the people at Dymag about some 5 spoke CF wheels. A set of two bolt on ready to go ( this s with all the hubs and even the rear sprocket and rotor) for 4100.00 USD. If I hit the lotto nextweek I'll get some. NO seriously, I'm considering it as a way to spend my christmas bounus.

Jeff, you Bastard! I saw those wheels at the San Mateo show and got all weak-kneed, but dropped the idea since they cost more than my last pickup truck (RIP).

Now the idea is gnawing at me again. Bastard!! :p

yep damnit, how am I supposed to save money for my triple 9 with posts like that.....luckily they don't come in colors....they don't right?
And Alex do you have to show the whole bike, a nice close up of the wheels
would have prevented drool pool on my keyboard.

Question, I have considered carbon wheels for many years. It seems as though the technology is here to stay. Now, which brand to go with.....BST or Dymag? These will go on my S4R, It seems as though Ducati has endorsed Dymag since they are DP products now.

Anybody seen both in person....which seem nicer?

Thanks,
Jeff

Carbon wheels look cool and all, but how durable are they? I would be worried that if I hit a decent sized pothole I'd crush the wheel. Am I being paranoid?

The new BST wheels are starting to come in with DOT E and JWL stamped on the wheels. (JWL is a Japanese wheel standard that often appears on high end auto wheels).

They will soon be OEM on a few special edition exotic bikes.

If you have never ridden on a bike with light weight wheels--this will be a very pleasant surprise.

If you are currently on magnesium wheels, you will experience that same amount of improvement once again.

It feels like adding 200cc to your bike and a major brake upgrade or dropping off your passenger...
