I was somewhat limited on my choice for a variety of different reasons, but went with Tune, which is the hub that Starbike is building them with...

almost pulled the triggers on a pair myself, but was a bit worried about the braking

* enve 6.7s - terrible
* shimano c75 - so-so
* ax lightness s55t/u24 - excellent

how well do these schmolke tlo rims brake?

I'll let you know. I'll get tires glued up this week and ride next. I'll post a report. I'm curious about that myself...

Similar weight to LW Gipfelsturm. I'd like to see a comparative test someday.

The problem i have with those schmolke and all the others wheelsets mentioned i built myself a 1020g set with carbon ti hub and 38mm deep tubular rims. Braking is as good as alloy rims ( i stop just as quickly) and cost well a hell of alot less than what schmolke are charging. So how do i mange it when enve can't.

It would be interesting though to know more about them.

What rims and hubs did you use? Sounds nice with the breaking.

First ride, short, about 32 miles and a couple thousand feet of climbing, so good descending too. Again, 1040g (TLO 30 tubular, Veloflex carbon tires) for the wheelset (Tune hubs) put together by the good folks at Fairwheel. These are on my Parlee Altum R, Campy EPS, EE Cycleworks brakes, Swiss Stop Black Prince pads.

As you might expect, acceleration is exciting. There is quite a bit of road feel and I'm not sure if that is the tire or the rim, more riding needed. This ride was very windy, so lots of cross winds, but the wheels didn't care. No cross wind issues. Downhill speeds never topped 35mph, but the wheels felt very stable and cornering was great. The biggest and nicest surprise was the braking, very solid, no pulsing, smooth and steady with no squealing. They look bitchin' and I'm very impressed so far. More after my next ride. I ran the tires at 110 and 100 psi and will try less next time. Thinking about ordering the TLO 45 clinchers...
