That is a neat wheelset. I looked at it a few months ago when reading about the group and considering a wheelset for the frame I was building up at the time.
The weight was reported as 1720g to 1800g though, at least from what I read on Shimano's site and one of the larger online reviews.
Its a good price for sure. 24h rims simply scare me away due to not wanting to chance breaking and spending more money, even if the profile is designed to support me.

Does your shop have them in stock?...vendors online seem to be out for the most part.
