Carbon fibre wheels

Postby Doug on Mon Jul 20, 2009 9:32 am

Hi all Im on a bit of a trip fitting carbon bits to my bike- I have found a company in South Africa that makes carbon wheels for my K1300s.

They are not as expensive as forged alli wheels- anybody done it- what are the pros and cons ?

CF wheels cheaper than forged alloy wheels?

Are you talking about blackstone tek?

Good wheels. Not my cup of tea, looks wise, though.
