Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Just picked up a BMC Alpenchallenge to commute with. it's HEAVY. (9.4kg)

Can someone recommend a good, light set of clinchers that can accommodate larger (i.e. cross size) tires and disc brake rotors?

I have two sets of wheels for my commuter/cx bike: for normal commuting I have a set of H+ Son Archetype (23mm-wide) rims and for cx I have a set of Stans Crest wheels running tubeless with Kenda Kommando SCT tires.

Both wheels will accept wide tires, but if you want to run high-pressure road the Crest may not be appropriate (I am not sure if max pressure they list is only for tubeless). I really like how wide the Crest are for 32mm cross tires.

I built both sets laced 28/32 3x with DT SuperComp spokes to BHS hubs. (I weigh ~175 lbs for reference.) Using the same hubs means adjustment-free swapping. (I swap the wheels frequently since I ride an off-road commute route when the trails are dry.)
