Gave Dymag a call as I was expecting them to be delivered this week and got told that they'll be at least another three weeks:bawl: I spoke to the production manager who told me that they produce ... wait for it ..... one wheel a day! Some bloody production that is. He must have the cushiest job in the world. So my original time of four weeks now looks like being closer to ten:(

Time seems to be draaaaaaagin' without them;)

1 wheel a day - I'm not surprised.
Laying up carbon takes ages. You can't automate it, so it will never be cheap - or quick.

The bloke at Dymag told me they have a semi automated process for car wheels but the ones for bike are done completely by hand :eek:
He also mentioned that because the pound is pretty weak at the moment there are quite a few Italians taking advantage of this and ordering from them rather than placing an order in with a company based in Italy.
I'm sure the time will fly by;)
