I read that article and was facinated by it when it came out last month. I think the quote that "a nonaero helmet creates 4x as much drag as a non-aero wheelset" is pretty specific. I personally think that the aero wheels look very very cool and would love to throw a set on my tri bike, but I just can't justify the cost. I already spent $x thousands on my tri bike and the tri bike already has Ksyrium SLs on it - which I love. If I bought a $1500 pair of Zipps or Alps or something I can't imagine it would make that much different. But the bling factor on my bike would be nice. Here's a pic of my bike just because I like it:
