Follow-up that they've been the most cost-competitive so far. A set of spoked wheels using the existing bits from my cast wheels (i.e. rotors, ABS ring, bushings, part of the rear assembly) runs $1019 plus about $60 shipping.

Woody's was very expensive at $1460.16 alone for the same bits plus whatever shipping is. They don't have any hub other than OEM at this point.


Since I don't need spokes until 2013 I'll probably hold off and hope some third party starts making hubs. Maybe Warp 9 or RAD CACR.

Additionally, I found that F650GS BMW wheels bolt up (makes sense too) and maybe I'll find something on the used market.

Thanks all for pieces of the puzzle. Still not cheap, but more options out there and prospects look better to get closer to the $1K mark than $2K mark I originally had thought.

Love my Strada. 101 miles as of this morning and it's a GREAT machine!
