I'd probably go DT240 too, but I was never too comfortable with the idea because I've heard there are knock-off DT240s around - I don't know how to spot them.

So what issues have people had with latex tubes? I received my 38mm 23mm wide carbon clinchers with the ED hubs. I used Stan's yellow tape, Michelin latex tubes with 4000S tires. I have yet to ride them between being sick, crappy weather and leaving on vacation in 2 days.

Latex tubes will probably not be able to take the heat from extended braking.
You may be fine though... unless your area is pretty hilly?

Next season i will ride with latex tubes on my carbon wheels. I've read a lot about it and as long as you dont go into the mountains it shouldnt be a problem. The biggest 'hill' in the area is 100m above sealevel, i dont expect to be overheating my rims on those decents :)

As said by prendrefeu i wouldnt be taking those into the mountains, better safe then sorry.

I live in the Midwest. I'm sure I'll be fine since the biggest climb I did on my road bike was less than 500' and generally no brakes needed or very limited.

In my experience with farsports and challenge latex tubes the carbon clincher rim will fail before the latex tube does.

The DT 240s from Farsports are legit. I have ordered two sets of wheels from them with these hubs and they are 100% authentic, star ratchet and all.

What is the general consensus regarding the EDHub w/ Ceramic BB? Looking to buy a pair of the 2014 model, hoping to find out if its worth the extra to get these lighter hubs?

I am in the same camp with ED CB hub. I ordered my second set a couple of days ago with the ED CB hub. I upgraded my first set to an 11 speed, while having them apart verified the Ceramic bearings.

You are in PDX and probably ride some of the same area that I do, you will enjoy them.

Nice, good to know. do you have the 38mm CC or the 50mm CC? and did you end up getting the U-shaped "aero" design?

i see, i wish i could go lower than 38mm, i weigh little to much to risk going to 23mm.
