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

Unlikely. They're straight pull but the issue is the nipples which is proprietary. Different hubs required different length spokes. You wouldn't be able to use the mavic spokes as they're probably the wrong length. DT-Swiss or Sapim straight pull spokes may fit in the hub but probably won't play with the mavic nipples. To be honest there's nothing intrinsically wrong with the hubs, so you're probably best off just putting up with them.

Sure they can be re laced to any 16 /20 hole hub i.e. White Industries T11's or Chris King R45's. Yes the nipples are proprietary however they work with a standard 2.0 spoke thread and I can get them from Mavic. Cost is hubs, spokes, nipples (about $0.85 ea) and labor ($60.00 per wheel).

Anyone seen the C40 tubular rim in the flesh? What width is it? Almost impossible to find any info on that wheel.
