I was surprised to see Ligero back in business. I owned a wheelset from Try half a decade (or more) ago and it was fantastic. Those wheels were based on his proprietary triplet-laced hubs and a Kinlin XR-300 rim with a fantastic ceramic coating he produced. I know many had customer service problems with Troy, but now this new iteration of Ligero has him partnering with two others, so perhaps that aspect will be smoother.

Anyone have experience with his new wheels, particularly the "Dark Matter" rims and his DT-built hubs?

I have had no dealings with Mr Watson but I have certainly read about the experiences of multitudes that did. If those reports don't forewarn anyone sufficiently, then they are braver consumers than I could ever imagine being.

The experiences that I read about were horrifying. I am certainly not willing to take the risk.

I have a set of the Dark Matter rims incoming. Building them into a set of Kappius road hubs. Looking forward to them.
