Question Price advantage?

Hello Woody,
From everything I've seen and heard, you are an awsome member of this forum.

I now have a new-to-me 950 ADV and am looking seriously at the 19/17 set-up for my more on-road ryding... will keep the 21/18 set up for the "serious" tryiping in the dirt/gravel.

I've read a lot in here regarding the Caponord wheel set-up and as I want to go tubeless with superlaced spokes thsi seems like a good approach. I've price a set of rims on various Aprilia parts sites... not sure how you aource them?
And big price/quality advantage to going with the Caponord set versus your "ground-up" building, assuming the same component quality of course??

Inquiring minds want to know

BTW, I pm'd a couple of days ago but recognized that you are/were over in Germany sorting out (?) the Behr issue.

Best from just north of the border in SE Ontario,
