I don't have any vested interest in what carbon wheels any rider buys, but I think if folks are going to make bold statements about comparative values it behooves them to at least acknowledge where indirect comparisons exist. \-\-\-\-\-\- I'd be quite happy with 1/1 hubs and Sapim Race spokes but these parts cost significantly less than Hydra hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes and that's reflected in the price of Reynolds' carbon wheels. In an apple:apple comparison (CX-Ray/Hydra) it would appear that Reynolds and We Are One are valuing their contributions (rims/assembly) at approximately the same amount. Personally, between the two options, while I've had _great_ experiences with Reynold's wheels, I'd buy We Are One rims as the fact they're made in BC adds significant value for me. That doesn't mean that for someone else Reynolds' wheels shouldn't be the more appealing purchase and specifically, that doesn't mean that they're innately of any worse value comparatively.
