    I have a friend who works at a bike shop and is a great wheelbuilder. He bought a PT pro and built it into brand new velocity aerohead rims and ultegra hub in the front with wheelsmith 14g spokes (32H front and rear). He then decided to purchase the new 2.4sl laced to the zipp 404's. He is offering me the pt pro with all accessories and velocity aerohead wheelset for 900$ even. From what I can find on ebay and elsewhere, this is a pretty darn good deal. Especially considering it is essentially brand new and the warranty has not yet been registered. I have read reviews on the aeroheads and they seem to be well respected. Will I regret having a 32hole rear hub in the future? I race but do not see myself buying another wheelset in the future.

    PowerTap provides very useful information for training and racing.
    How much do you weigh?
    What type of racing do you do?
    What wheels do you have now?
    Is the rear Velocity Aerohead rim the OC model?
    Are you sure the spokes are straight 14 g (not butted)?
    I think that 32 spokes in the rear is a very good idea.
