Looks nice and clean, can't go too wrong with black saddle and tape. What do you make of the wheels?
Got a link to where you got them?

Less than 200 miles on wheelset so far , so can't give a lot of info there.I'm 160 lbs ,so seem plenty stiff for a rider my size.No brake pad rubbing when climbing hard,or weird noises.Cassette hub noise is pretty LOUD,still getting use to that.
I actually got these wheels in a trade I made,was just told they were bought off the" BAY " from here :

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Light-weight-38 ... 4ab613cae7" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The brake track is actually carbon finish,while the rest of the wheel is matte black paint.Been running them with swiss stop pads ,braking is excellent,no shuddering ,or squeeking.Very predictable handling.
Hope that helps a little :wink:

Cheers for the reply, I've heard Novatec hubs can be noisy but it's neither here nor there when you consider the price.
Good to hear they are stiff too, with so many Chinese carbon rims around all the opinions I can get are welcome.
They certainly look the part, and at that price you'd have no gripes using them for training.
