Bugger.

I told them I was hoping to be able to afford one soon and was almost there, and they offered me the code.

Didn't work for me, no code received.
It seems that you need to imply that you already have one. I think it is a loyalty reward thing. I asked about if they were going to do the trade up deal in Australia (they are not) and then winged about the weak Aussie dollar and they gave me the code. It wasn't through tech support but through sales.

Which section did you click on? What to buy? Tech support?
Sales support I think, I just asked some questions about SD card compatibility and capacity, slo-mo recording, then said I was hoping to be able to get one soon.

Will give it another crack tomorrow.

I know, 26 is dead, especially for dh because 29 is king right?

But these are a flat out bargain from cycling deal if you're still running old outdated wheelsizes like me

I was going to build a wheelset, but this cost me what my hubs did so I've pulled the pin on that for now. Nice clikky hub, big solid rims, straight pull spokes.

28 spoke for a DH wheelset.
Huge bags of nopes.

Yeah, I hesitated for a tic because of that, but I can't see 4 spokes less being a big issue for me. They're a fairly sizable rim (32mm ext, 26mm int) and the spokes are straight pull 2mm/2.2mm butted. Time will tell, but I have high hopes that they'll be stronger than any of the old flow wheelsets I have, despite the lack of spokes.

Lol! Those guys have no idea with this wheelset. eBay listing was all different again, had some roadie stuff going from memory?

You made me look though, verniers tell me the rear is 150, this makes more sense than 142.

I'm still living in the past with both my trail and DH bikes on 26.

I'm pretty curious to know what you think of these rims!?
