Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Those wheels look pretty aero for their depth. How do they ride?

The wheels are 35mm deep and for my weight (74kg), they hold up very good. No percievable flex. Braking in the dry is perfect, even better compared to aluminium. I use black prince pads (not the evo's). In the wet, they take longer to shed the water, but braking is sufficient. Whould I use these in the steepest decent in the dry? Yes. In the wet? yes, but i'll be braking a whole lot more. The rims came in on the exact weight as described. Their basalt braking surface is an noticeable improvement, although not ground braking.

Final disclamer. I haven't ridden huge amounts of different carbon wheels, so take this as a single sample experience. :)

How much would the bare frame weigh? And what about the fork?
I'm thinking of getting one. Saw a 2012 model in the ads today with campy superrecord...

Well, the 1120 grams I wrote about might be the bare frame. I wrote it down from memory. And the fork must be around 370. Point being, these are not very light frames. They are however very comfortabele and stiff. That's what I notice whenever I build and ride another bike.

Very nice setup. Good to hear positive reviews on the Basalt surface since I have been considering picking up a set of the 24mm china clinchers with a Bitex hubset.
