Definitely going to get some tubs for the summer and interested in these as a realtively low entry point into a new, UK supplied pair of tubs; Gigantex rims I believe ( tubs are a bucketlist thing for me ) . Anyone running them or PX 50mm tubs with success? CT45s not apparent on searches....

One of my team mates has been using the 50mm tubs for a couple of years now. He has had to replace the freehub a couple of times now, other than that he seems happy considering the price. Not the stiffest either. I think the CT45's have been released very recently, hence the lack of info.

P.S. You won't regret going to tubs, they are awesome! :thumbup:

thanks mate, they will be fair weather wheels as I bash some fulcrum 7s in the winter so I hope I won't wear out more than a freehub a year! A gigantex rim is £200 a pop from the cycle clinic hence I may as well go for some PX wheels at £400 even if I end up rebuilding at some point in the future.
