I got the Edco Fluela 85mm wheelset today. The finish on these wheels are beautiful and the surface is super smooth. The decals appear to be baked onto the rims as I feel no steps or bumps when running my fingers across the surface. I do not want to ruin the finish on these rims by removing the decals. However, it is necessary because the red will not match the purple accents I will have on this build.
They are shaped like Reynolds Aero series wheels where the rims taper to a very narrow profile. The brake track also looks like the CTG track used on Reynolds wheels. I do not see Paul Lew's trademark Swirl Lip Generator on these rims. What I do notice is the valve hole has an aero shape to it and is directional which is groovy.
I got some wheel bags which I really do not need.
The directional valve hole is a nice aero detail. I am glad these wheels were "handbuilt by professionals". What ever that is supposed to mean. LOL
Where the hell is the Swirl Lip Generator found on Lew and Reynold's wheels????? It is missing!!
This needs to come off but will I be able to remove it without destroying this beautiful finish?
These wheels make this bike look mean. Some may argue that they are too deep but I like the look of these on this tiny frame
