They are tubulars ...
To the weight of the pictures remove 15g to each rim because there is a giant striker protecting the decals...

Well and all went to s*#t...

Acording to R2bike there where a problem with one of the rims or both i don't know, and i cancel the deal. To me and R2bike they are still in prototype stage.

Don't know what i'm going to buy, but i'm inclined to the MAVIC Cosmic ultimate 2017

My TLO clinchers are perfect, I wonder what R2 says the issue is with yours?

My TLO rims needed 8 weeks to be ready. Because acording with Schmolke they were having problems with the mold.

when the dealer was buiding the wheels they realize that there where a problem with valve part of the rims (they din't give many details), and don't wanted to send the wheels to me, because i will have problems with them in the future.
Wheels where were already payed and the rims where 24/28 TLO 45 tubular.

so i don't know what the problem was.

Not interested anymore in these rims, to many delays and toooooo many problems, so i cancel everything asked for a refund
.
The dealer is very good, and ended loosing money in this deal because Hubs are 24/28 and already bought.

ALL I CAN SAY IS EVERYTHING WENT WRONG WITH THESE WHEELS, AND I DON'T WANT THEM IN MY BIKE.

Any more recent impressions? I am mainly concerned with the lateral stiffness of the 45 sl clincher. I'll be coming from a set of enve 6.7s and don't want to give up a ton of lateral stiffness to save 300g. I'm about 85kg.

Mine have 2K miles on them and they have been great so far, no complaints from me! One of my friends is roughly your weight and riding the same wheels as me (he liked mine so much he got a set) and loves them. I think my setup is pretty stiff, I've had Enves and Boras in the past and can't notice any lateral flex.

To me my Schmolkes feel like the Enve 4.5s I had (briefly) mixed with the Mavic CCUs I ran. I do wish they had a textured brake track like the new Enves, then they would be perfect. I'd be interested in trying the new 3.4s and seeing how those compare..

I received my Schmolke wheels, laced to Tune 45/150 hubs. 1010g on my scales and oh so pretty..

Question... Which pads are Schmolke owners running? I love the black Prince pads for the price and stopping power.

Currently using Black Prince but I think I'll try Reynolds Blue or Enves next.

@denavelo, I have Reynolds Cryo, Power Pads, Zipp and Enve pads you can borrow to try out and report back. Might as well try the Bora pads while you're at it, LOL.
