Decided to sell the Lightweights. I am about to move to Hong Kong and wanted something easier to repair and maintain myself (traditional spokes).

Have gone for 404 Firecrests. Amazing wheels. I can see how they won't fit certain frames as they are appreciably wider than a normal rim. Seems strange at first looking down and seeing the rim wider than the 23mm tire, but now I am used to it.

And just for the fun of it, the Hyperons off my forthcoming Colnago Master 30th AD10 build (can't wait for that one - damn those Italian lead times!). Think this bike looks and rides better with deep sections, but the Hyperons spin forever and are definitely more than the sum of their parts.

Well I personally think it looks better with the Zipps on it. I think any deep wheel as to the look of any bike.

Without question the Hyperons - those are the coolest wheels, like, ever. I love the moots, a ton, but the slope is just too much for me. I'm not a strict traditional guy either, but their slope is just too much.

With that said, sweet bike and without a doubt - Hyperons.
