aerospoke : the unboxing

After a tense-butt 9 week wait, a Spinergy Rev-X impulse buy and a few blown out tires, the Aerospoke finally arrived.

First impressions:
Lighter than I expected. Off the top of my head, I'd say it ways about the same as my rear Velocity Deep-V. The allen wrench bolt on hub is a bit odd at first, but I like it. I guess I'm used to my quick release and bolt on nuts. The actual ride is amazing. The wheel is solid and feels very aerodynamic.
Definitely one boss piece of equipment. Compared to the Spinergy, I don't feel like the wheel will shatter or come untrue. Whereas, I think I would throw on the Spinergy if I was about to race somewhere.
