Looking good. How 'bout some detailed measurements when you get her all dialed in. Kind of nice to see things like Saddle Height, Saddle to bar drop, Tip of saddle to middle of stem, etc. Kind of like they do on Bike Radar for pro bikes. Also, rider stats is good too. Like height and inseam in particular. Of course, not necessary but if you've got it...

I had some Reynolds DV46ULC rims built with Aerolites onto DT Swiss 190 hubs. Don't know what it was, but I never really felt that confident on those wheels. They were very light but I don't think the hubs have the best geometry for Campy (mine were built 28 rear, 2x and 20 radial front). Girlfriend loves them however, but she's only 120lbs and a very good descender. How do you find them, even though they are not the ultralight versions and probably have a bit heavier spokes than the aerolites?

I thought all DV46s had Aerolites on the front and non-drive side of the rear?

I don't think so. Isn't the DV46 the rim of the Assaults. The DV46UL's were sold as rim only I think but I could be wrong. I bought rims, spokes and hubs separately in 2010 then in 2011 they added material back due to a lot of warranty issues. Same as Edge/Enve in that same time period. I thought the Assaults came with the equivalent of something like DT comps. Not sure though.

I've got absolutely no complaints with my DV46c. However I did have some strikes on my system six that would pop spokes every other ride. Not sure if this has anything to do with build quality or lower grade parts but it has definitely been worth the cost difference between the tiers of wheels. My testimonials are only on the flats though, I haven't had enough hill exposure to experience sketchiness on descents or brake fade.

Having said that, for my predominantly flat parcours, I am strongly considering some bora 2 dark labels in the not so distant future... For campys sake 8)

I have some Bora Dark labels thinking they'd go great on my EPQ, but in the end I like it best with the classic Nemesis/Record wheels. Just the other day I put the Boras on again just to see, but put the Nemesis/Record wheelset right back on. Perhaps it's the tan sidewalls I have on the dark labels that make it look too busy, yet the tan sidewalls with the low profile Nemesis look awesome. More of a classic look. I do like your all black wheels on your bike however. Perhaps when I change tires I'll put all black tires on and try it again.
