Cool. I wonder if they'll update the Valors at some point soon too.

Thanks for the info Birdman.
How did they build up- nice and round/true?

I had them built by Higher Gear in Wilmette, IL. Near Chicago. I asked the builder similar questions and he said everything was fine. Round, true, not flex to him.

I had them laced 32h on DT 240s.

Hi Birdman. Why did you go for Crest MK3 instead of a pair of carbon rims?

Mainly cost reason. These MK3 rims are pretty light for the price.

I have purchased from FarSports before with good experience, and I plan on buying some more in the future. They just came out with new rims too.
