FYI
I just bought a set of these and am quite please so far. Straight and true out of the box and they ride really nice. A bit heavier than what I was used to but carry speed well and don't flex when mashing it. Its a crap shoot buying direct across the pond but these guys seem to be ok. The only thing I would change on my next set of wheels from them is to tell them to hold the uber sticky spoke prep. These appear to be a zipp firecrest 303 clone without the dimples, not quite as blunt on the trailing edge but close. I took a chance on scratching my wide style carbon clincer itch without spending more than what my entire bike cost. Maybe it will work out but time will tell.

I am happy to report no darwin awards thus far after several training rides, a trip down a mountain pass uber fast, and a rain soaked road race. Even jumped a few rail road tracks for good measure. Wheels are definitely fast and are holding up well. I have bought direct from across the pond numerous times and it can be a crap shoot but Kung Foo did a good job on these.
