So whilst my set of Velocity A23's built up on Novotec like hubs and CX-Ray's 20/24 where nice and still arrow true after a good 15,000km I concluded I wanted an improved build.

So went for Pacenti SL23's on Red Goldtec Pro Competition hubs, 24/28 CX-Rays with red alloy nipples......total 1520g on my scales, 2x front and rear. Not super weight weenie but nice for 1200w+ sprints :thumbup:

Plus the Goldtec's are ridiculously smooth rolling!!

Looking forward to test riding them with a few different tyres + latex inners :beerchug:

Looks like a great build! The SL23 is definitely a step up from the A23. Much more versatile IMO.

Great build!

The SL23 should be a significant upgrade from the A23. It has a much nicer finish and the spoke holes are drilled much more cleanly. For its specs it's a relatively light hoop too.
