well, anyway... I'm super happy with my CR420s... so I'd thought I's give the carbons a whirl.

Now to find some proper cork brake blocks for my 05 record calipers.

You should use the Zipp pads, they work great and last longer than cork does. I've been using mine for 2 months now and still have losts of pad left.

Rich I've just purchased a set of those. I got the sapim spoke upgrade and the wheels weighed in at 1025g. I have silver spokes and hubs and it looks nicer than the black (especially on that limited of yours). Havn't weighed the decals I took off of them but hopefully they'll be closer to an even 1000g w/o the decals. Havn't had a chance to ride them yet, I will thursday and give some feedback.

KaB, I took the plung, ordered a set of the 38mm Carbons today, but I went with the black spokes, standard build, Ti binders.

I couldn't justify the extra 100 clams for the sapims (I have them on my CR420s) since Simon @ A/C told me they only will save about 30g.

I have a set of Corsa CX Evo for the rear, and a CX T.T. for the front.

And Tufo rim tape...

If you don't mind me asking, what was the damage to your wallet?

Can't disclose at this juncture... It was an employee deal. Especially when they carefully monitor this forum.
