    They look very cool, Erick, and the colored push rims, I predict, will be a big lure.

    With twice the number of spokes of the Dinos, where is the weight difference/savings coming from?

    Most of it is in the hubs.

    I like the way the spokes attach to the hubs. No more tearing down the wheel to get to the spoke.

    Look much better than the Dinos.

    Very nice! This style with 1/2 the spokes would be more my speed, but I like these quite a lot. Thanks for your work on bringing us some cool stuff to roll with, Eric. (That blue sure would look nice with the blue frame M1...)

    Would I be correct in my observation that even the "wide" hub will be narrower than a Spinergy SPOX "everyday" hub (3.0" -vs-~3.25")?

    Darn. I'll have to stick to the SLX's... Not that I need 350 but I need a bit over 250...

    Erick,
    - Is the push rim the same diameter as the Dino?
    - Will you eventually offer the spokes/push rims in the other colors available for the Dino?
