Subject: [CR]Ghisallo wooden rims

Has anyone seen the recent publicity about Ghisallo rims? They are still being made, not far from the Madonna del Ghisallo shrine in the Italian Alps.

Apparently, Ric Hjertberg (of Wheelsmith fame, along with his brother, Jon) will be the North American distributor. Three models: 330-gram tubular, 430-gram tubular, and 560-gram clincher. Looks like $350/pair at retail, if I am reading correctly.
