Dialed Ride - 2011 Specialized S-Works Epic

Rob bought this full suspension 29er the other day.  Weighs in at 22lbs...  Carbon: full frame, fork crown and steer tube, rims, hubshells, cranks, seatpost, handlebars, brake levers. Full SRAM XX.  One question for Specialized:  Why the hell use stiffer bladed spokes on only one-quarter of each wheel (and round spokes on the rest of the wheel)?  Seems like a case of form over function.  Anyone got theories on this?

The Rovals are some sexy rims.  Another customer came in last week and bought a Stumpy HT Comp with a set of Rovals--they shaved a full 2.5 POUNDS of rotational weight off of the bike!!!  That's a serious upgrade.  We'll be stocking more of these wheels (as well as Easton carbon wheelsets) this summer for those of you thinking about lightening up your ride.
