If they're as big as the pics, you're going to struggle to get tyres to fit!!

They're wide, but no wider than 404 Firestrikes or SES 6.7s

I've got those rims on my fixed gear. So far so good. Only trouble is they are very wide. I've got Ultegra brakes on the front and had to shave the pads a bit to get enough clearance. I've got about a thousand miles on them now and no problems so far.

Fixed gear and brakes? Must be urban hipster :offtopic: :thumbup:

Looking great, but isn't 1700 grams a bit too much?

Wouldn't say so, not particularly relevant anyway for a pair of race wheels for undulating UK races.

My build came out to 1742g with a very heavy rear White Industries Eno 28 spoke hub and a fairly light BHS 24 spoke front hub. With a lighter rear hub it could have been in the low 1600's. Not bad for a deep carbon wheel set.

I got those wheels from another supplier. Same stats though. Im noticing flex in my rims when i get out of my saddle to climb. Because of that, ive had to pull my brake pads out. Let me know if you notice the same thing.

That's not flex in the rim, that is flex in the spokes or hub. You feel the rims at the brakes because they don't bend.
