    while looking on cyclingnnews.com, i found this review of Interbike 2004
    apparently shimano released a 10spd ultegra wheelset to go with the groupset-heres the link-http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech/2004/shows/?id=interbike/wheels
    i am assuming these arent the r-550's that shimano now have
    have any of you heard anything about this wheelset?

    well i emailed shimano and i was right, hers is there reply


    Thanks for your inquiry. There will be a new Ultegra-level 10-speed wheel set called WH-R600. The WH-R600’s are expected to become available in February 2005. They feature similar construction to the WH-7800 and WH-R550 wheel sets, but with Ultegra-level bearings and an asymmetrical rear rim to enhance rigidity. More info (weights, specs) will be published on our web site early next year.
