Mavic is the flavor of the month. Got these in today but I'm more excited about what's coming next week.

My R Sys SLR clinchers are probably the most comfortable clincher wheels I've ridden. Which Tubs are you piutting on that set?

It's getting my go to tire these days: Veloflex Roubaix.

I rode around the car park and these have a lot of bite compared to the Boras. I'll be curious to see how they are under hard braking but since I just glued the tires, I didn't want to test that out yet.

I like the look with the CCUs.

So is this off the market for now?

Yeah, other than having to clean it after every ride, I'm growing rather fond of it. A small change in reach made a big difference in its descending mannerism which was my primary contention with it. Part of that problem was caused by the short reach on the SRAM eTap shifters, which resulted in about 15mm more reach in the drop than my Campy equipped Litespeed. Reach on the hoods with DA is about the same as Campy so it's all good now.

Ridiculous deal on the CCU's. That's quite the bling bike now.

I paid roughly market price on the CCUs. I did get a smoking deal on the Ksyriums though.

Initial impressions of the Ksyrium SL after about 200k this weekend is that they're probably my new favorite long day wheel. They seem to be slightly more comfortable than the Bora 35s (both on Roubaix 25mm tires) but less laterally stiff. I'd put them between Enve 25 and the Bora in that respect. Braking is superb. Braking is immediate and with heaps of power. It's very smooth through the entire power range so there's no shuddering or pulse.

My only gripe with them is how loud the freehub is. That and I wish they were 100g lighter because 1200g for this depth is mildly obese.

Most of what I have read on the Mavic CCUs say they are great wheels but the ride is stiff / harsh, so Im looking forward to your ride report.

Interesting. I thought they were quite comfortable.

I just realized Mavic updated the CCU wheels to 25mm width!
Mavic made the wheels 25mm wide but added weight to them as well (1180g to 1250g).
The most noticeable thing I noticed about U shaped Wide rims versus 22mm V shaped rims, is in cross winds....
I used to get blown sideways coming down long windy descents on the V shaped rims. That no longer happens on the same roads with U shaped wide 25-27mm wide rims.

ryanh aka king of the wheels! I have (2) sets of Schmolke wheels and I just talked myself into buying a set of Enve 2.2 wheels laced to Carbon Ti hubs...

You probably need to get rid of some Schmolkes now :D
