@btompkins0112: according to the yellow pad listed on the website.. it looks like those are swiss-stop.. isn't that the same as black prince?

+1...have used the Black Prince for 700 miles and no issues...but these are my first carbon clinchers so can't really make comparisons except based on research reading
2011 Tarmac Pro SL3 Project Black (gone but not forgotten)
2012 Parlee Z5 SLi (just because)
2014 Colnago C59 (why not)

got my U shaped "cyclecross" 38mm clinchers today. Took 32 days to receive from payment and I had to pay $22.25 duties to NYC. Anyway, the box was in excellent shape, and the wheels looked great. I'll post a report as well as pics when I get a ride in.

The tire (23mm) lines up almost perfectly with the wheel, & installation was pretty much the same as any of my old wheels. I heard these were hard to get on, but it could have been made easier with the width?
