@kennyken1015: I know lol. I haven't commented in a while, so I figured that would be a good start to knocking off the dust. Thanks for acknowledging!

Atomik Debuts New Technologies in Carbon Wheelsets
The reason they cost so much more is the manufacturing costs. Aluminum rims are all extruded, cut to size by the bundle, then are pinned or welded together by some machine. There may even be an automation process for sanding the welded or butted seams, but the entire process is nearly automated. Carbon is an much more human intensive process, not to forget you're only getting one wheel out of each mold. Not arguing if carbon wheels are better or not, that's for each manufacturer to science the hell out of. But for everyone to keep arguing about price is silly. Until some super genius finds a reputable way to make this system automated, don't expect a major price jump any time soon.
