I have had very good "luck" with half a dozen of the old Edge 1.25 rims, each sub-200g.
If these rims are truly under 200 and with AX-L quality (i.e. a "dry" carbon), then they
should be something special indeed. And 2600. is not outrageous. Not a steal, but then
nothing these days in cycling is.

Yea compared to the prices of Lightweight wheels...at least these imo are within reason for pricing

they sound like an interesting proposition....I just wonder of they are reasonably laterally and torsionally stiff...ultimately in climbing accelerations are pretty key...
most attempts at this kind of weight/construction (i.e. unlike LWs) tend to be pretty underwhelming...but hope to hear otherwise!

Slightly off topic, but trying to order some Di2 parts on Starbike.com. Noting the note at the top of the WW site regarding 5% off. I seem to meet the criteria, but no discount appears in the cart. Suggestions or experiences?

Disregard. Appears to be user (me) error.

Hi, any experience on these wheels? I'm interested on these but would like to know if the rims can really survive tough hammering and non-perfect road surfaces. Also how stiff are the wheels? Do they flex when out of saddle?
