Alpina Tubeless wheel set for 1475--worth it?

Kind of like the idea of tubeless and they seem surprisingly affordable right now (strong dollar). Any opinions?

JCPAKBIKES.com. He is THE Alpina distributor in US. Need to be a Ducati.ms forum member--otherwise $1695. These are built and ready to roll. They seem--if I am pricing it out correctly on ktmtwins.com--like a fraction of their web site price.

Alpina wheels

I bought a set for my 2007 990 Adventure a few years ago. They are quite good. Never leaked at all. I sold the bike a while ago but have kept the wheels. They come complete except for the brake rotors. I also like the idea of tubeless.

he offers the Ducati forum the deal as he was/is mostly Ducati supplier. YRMV. Just passing on what I learned--hope it didn't ruffle anybody's feathers.

Thanks for the head up Chuck.
Yes the price is correct, at least for now with the weak euro.
The price quotes actually is a special price for this forum members and He should have a touch more discretion as we try and keep our resellers happy. Prices like this on the open WWW can cause a little tension and special quotes are not intended for open discussion.
He should have read my email with the quote

so

Never ask "what would I have to do?" on Adventure Rider, never...

I have a set on the way from JC, and I'm mounting Conti Trail Attack II's. I guess there was a bit of a hitch in Italy, 'cause they're taking a bit longer. Can't wait to try them out headed north on PCH/Highway 1.
