Soul Wheel Owners... Post your pics

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I got an email today saying my wheels were ready. I sent the payment right away so hopefully they'll be on their way to the States soon.

I doubt they'll be here by the weekend, but maybe they'll be here by next!!
Can't wait.
I was thinking the exact same thing...I could definitely live with those graphics.

+1 Almost a pound heavier than the S2.0's. But damn they're nice.

Agreed. I already know I want the S4.0, but I'm waiting for lighter.

How long was the wait from when the "Held by Customs at Destination" showed up on the tracking to when the wheels showed up at your door step?

2-4 Days depending on how far from the customs depot you are.

Exactly right. 2 days for me. Good news: it arrived. Bad news: I have to wait till tomorrow to go pick it up. I plan on being tardy to a staff meeting as I am booked solid all day otherwise ..

My S2.0SL wheels have been "held by customs" for over two days now. I've been checking it regularly hoping that the status well change.

Are you east or west coast? Please post pics. I'm sure many of us want to see it.

I should be getting my invoice for all black S2.0SL with gray decals today. Hopefully I'll get them around the second week of March.
