Nice...there's at least half a dozen members here with CF wheels on the Gen4....

I've been eyeballing the 5spoke OZ Piega forged alum...

I have Dymags and find them amazing! No probs at all, there will be some who say no good but thats life!If you ever get a chance to have a ride on a gen1v go for it and make your own mind up about cf rims:)

I know of no less than 25 bikes around where I live that have BSTs and have had them for years on the street WITHOUT A SINGLE ISSUE! I'm sure someone somewhere has broke them but I can also tell you about a guy in school shop that fucked up an anvil!!!! There's people in this world that can fuck up hanging their self if they were to try..... First BST I ever saw was around 2001 or so what a friend was trying to be the BST importer for the whole US... He had a front wheel without a tire and would allow anyone to bounce it against the concrete like a basket ball!! I did this myself and watched it fly back up past my head by about 5 or 6 feet and the wheel was undamaged!!!!! Sure it had nicks from impacting the concrete but it wasn't broken anywhere... That wheel today sits in his office still and it's still unbroken... It's probably been slammed on the concrete more than 50 times by dozens of guys trying to break it and it's still unbroken!!! NO Aluminum or Mag wheel could take that... I'm sold and I also have BSTs that I use on a street bike and I have NO FEAR they will ever fail... People hyping failed BSTs are just a bunch of nay sayers looking to bash a superior product

Using them for over 8 years with zero issues!!!

Last week i had a puncture at the highway going 170kmh, the tire instantly deflated.
The bike got heavy and started shaking abit, but hold a steady line until i stopped.
Expected much worse, because i had another puncture years ago with less speed on it and could not handle the bike, the shaking was unbelievable...

Money well spent!!!
