the lastest model (the ones you have shown in the link) have really jumped up in price. The previous model was around $1,300 from o/s. I've been told that they didn't change much. So you might be able to pick up an old model set at a 1/2 secent price if you are inclined to but 2nd hand. I looked into it, but couldn't find anything suitable about the traps. I ended up going with Chinese knock offs for 1/3 the price. So far so good.
I ride several bicycles, but not at once.

The Bracciano is a "standard" wheel by definition, as such does not require specific UCI testing/approval.

but lets say i want change from 3k for the set


Greg at TWE made me a pair of 50mm full carbon clinchers with DT Swiss Aero spokes and smooth (but loud) hubs 20F / 24R 1,380gr (actual weight) for $1,700 plus courier delivery with greg's famous 'lifetime repair' warranty.

I use them as my every day ride, no issues after a couple of thou. km. They ride beautifully, roll forever..... blah blah blah and are every bit as good as old mate from down the road with 2010 404's fitted to the same bike as mine.

Heck - I'm like a broken record..... Greg, where's my cheque..........


+1 For Greg at TWE .... 4,500km on my 50mm Full Carbon Clinchers since January 2011 .... They have never skipped a beat.
I have ridden deep Zipps, Dura-Ace, Bouwmeesters and Mavic's .... The TWE are better wheels than the lot.
Fondriest TF2, Dura-Ace, Deda Cockpit, TWE 50 Carbon Clincher wheelset, Gore Cables, Elite Cages, Selle Italia SLR Team
Look 695 SR, Dura-Ace Di2, FSA Carbon Bars, Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL's, Elite Cages, Prologo Nago Evo
