American Classic Alphatype Disc Wheelset - 29in - 2009 BCS
Use your watts smartly and hook up your twenty-niner with the spin-tastic American Classic Alphatype Disc Wheelset. This ultra-round, evenly tensioned, and trued 29er set transfers all your power through its quick-engaging freehub body, while the double wall, deep-V rim resists torsional loads for precise handling. If you brake late and hard, nail the apex, and stand up to sprint out of a turn…you’ve found a wheelset that’ll please your shrewd singletrack style.

Just an FYI for potential buyers--the wheels pictured are not the wheels you receive.
I ordered the wheels in early June 2010 and received the single speed model of these wheels, not a cassette-friendly freehub as shown in the pictures. When I emailed them to ask about what I had received, they told me that they did not have any of the geared models (the SS freehub is shortened and will only accept a handful of gears).
Chainlove was great about their return policy, and even paid for the return. It's very unfortunate--the Alphatype white makes for some great looking wheels.
