I got a pair of the assaults two weeks ago. I've only done 200 miles on them but I really like them already.
. Was a bit worried about the cheaper hubs but they have freed off nicely already, and are surprisingly smooth.
Think are only about 50grams heavier than the much more expensive DV46 Cs. Picked these up at my LBS for £800, which I think is really good value for full carbon clinchers.
Only thing I have a problem with is the brake squeal when using with yellow swiss stops - any suggestions on how to cure this? Do I need to angle my brake blocks differently?
As for brake squeal, I use the Reynolds baradine pads that come with them on DA 7700 calipers. I set them up by clamping on the rim with the bolt loose, positioning them on the rim how I want them, and then tightening them down. This produces no toe in. They worked great for 300 miles, then they squealed like crazy, so I filed the pads with a metal file to rough up the surface. Since then, they have been flawless.
I have never been a big fan of toe in. If you toe in a set of pads, they will square themselves off fairly quickly. Then you have to toe them in more. It really chews through pads.
