I was forwarded these spy photos of some new American Classic wheels from an operatives i-phone camera. Details are sparse as of now, but if I get anymore information regarding these, I will update the post.

American Classic disc wheel set for 29
Another view of the American Classic wheels

It appears that these are 32 spoke wheels laced to the American Classic disc hubs we are familiar with on white rims. In a nod to Mavic, we see one spoke that is white next to the valve stem. The rim appears to be in the sub 28mm category, judging from the looks of that Prowler SL mounted to it, but this is only speculation based upon the picture.

Hopefully we can garner some details for you on these. White is appearing to be a fashionable component color choice for 2009 on 29″ers, so look for more of the same in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more pre-Interbike leakage and any news from over the pond at Eurobike that we can lay our hands on.

UPDATE: I recieved this e-mailed comment from Jeremy of American Classic:

“UH-OH! Yep, this is our look for 2009. For the record, we did not approve this leak. We have brought in white rims to this year’s line, and couldn’t be happier with our new graphics across the board! The white version has been dubbed Alphatype, but its looks like our black version is still a secret! Eurobike will debut the rest of our line. To add, we actually had request for a single colored spoke: ask and you shall receive!
We have also added more than just a new look. New hubs, new wheels, options galore!
Congrats to twentynineinches to getting some spy photos!
