Yes have done about 150km, 1000m climbing
I really like them
They aren't really effected by cross winds
They roll really smoothly and dampen down some of the road chatter...roads here are hit and miss
Hard to tell accurately but I think I'm faster
They accelerate well

Wheelworks are a very easy company to deal with, Tristan is a top bloke.

My only niggle is that the W sticker on the rim is not centred on the valve

They are guaranteed for life

...all the positives may just be a bias because They're new and I need to justify the expense...but I don't think so

So far I'm very happy...and would buy again

I'll get to properly test them in November in Nelson for ATCC

Cane Creek products are distributed in Australia by Dirtworks. I have seen EE brakes on display at Bike Now in Melbourne. Bikebug are also stocking EE now.


Out of stock and the same price to buy from them as it would be to buy in New Zealand, so no cheaper if I was to get from there. But if you're in Aus might be sweet

All of them are so expensive, dirt works are $715 each, can get a pair for that price.

Thanks! Looking at the 35mm version. Theyre not cheap but the attention to detail that they display is impressive. Not a huge weight saving over my Bontragers though which is really the only thing that would stop me. You running them tubeless?

I got them from Starbike, which I found to be the cheapest. And for some reason, I never get charged gst locally spend whatever amount at Starbike so it's great savings for me.

You're right about both the attention to detail & limited weight saving

They have some pretty light wheels on this site.

No I'm not brave enough to try tubeless...yet. :D

Bought a set of these:
Image

Weight: F 623g/R 863g = Pair 1486g
Rims: Super high-modulus, impact-resistant 50mm deep-V full monocoque tubular design
Spokes: Triple-butted aero 2.2mm SS, radial-laced F/2X R
Hubs: Lightweight design w/Japanese-made EZO cartridge bearings (2Fx5R), 20H F/24H R
Freehub: Shimano 9/10, Campagnolo 9/10/11-speed compatible
Extras: Lightweight QR skewers with machined aluminum levers &hardened cro-mo shafts

Will be interesting to see if they arrive and I have been assured that it will have both Campagnolo and Shimano freehubs..... It was the last pair in stock and price was about 80% off the re-stock price and about 90% off list...

Also bought a set of FSA Plasma handlebars off eBay so am waiting to see what that looks like as well.

I think the Wheels and Bars will be for my Colnago and then have a swap around with some stuff ending up on the my aero Reef/EPX. Not sure if any bits will end up on the Sintessi...
