Been riding my CLX 50 for 4 months. Step up with Tubeless Pro One 25 tires. Shop could not get the tires to seal using just the plugs, had to use tape.
Love the wheels, they are fast and with 80 PSI backs dn 75 Front ride like a dream. I sometimes dont pump the tires up for a week and ride them at around 60/65 PSI.
I have a Specialized Sworks Tarmac and the bike accelerates very well.

Only issue is the braking. In the dry they are ok, in the wet, terrible. I dont know how the Pros (Quickstep and Bora) ride these wheels in races in the wet and are able to stop so well.

If I had these on a disc bike, would give them 10 out of 10.
I would not call myself a novice rider, how people say there is no difference between disc and rim brakes, this is the biggest reason to get discs. I dont start my rides in the wet, however the weather this year has been so bad that so many rides it ends up raining.

I have been riding my CLX50 for 2 months. On my trip in Dolomites i have damaged my front Wheel. (descent from Gavia). I have send it back to Specialized.
Had to wait for 2 months for my new Wheel (out of stock) :evil: :evil:

Because of that and poor bracking with Swiss Top brake pads i would like to try Corima brake pads.

Have any of you trayed Corima brake pads? Can i do some damage whit them?

Black Prince pads are strong but develop a lot of heat. Corima cork pads are weaker (and really bad in the wet) but go easy on the rim. A compromise would be Zipp or Enve brake pads.

A lot of people are also happy with these: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/lifeline-perfor ... pack-of-4/
