@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

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?
