Have a couple of other wheelsets to throw in, AX 24s drop the weight below 6kg. Those 88s are heavy, but spin nicely and did cost little compared to other options with such rim heights.

Nicely done although I am not a fan of huge profile wheels on normal (non aero) frames.
a)Bars need to be rotated clockwise.
b)Why not an enve stem?

Very nice, looks very well balanced for a big frame. Have you any photos with some less aero wheels.The wheels are great, but I think it would be nice to have some wheels that are not so overpowering, photo-wise.
Noticed that the quick release on your brakes are not all the way down as they should be.
cool bike

Thats because the good mechanic leaves the lever a tad open until the cables settle in, so the only thing he has to do is to completely close them and the brake is perfectly set up. ;)

Will provide some pics with other wheelsets. ENVE stem is no option for me since its heavier and not very beautiful either.

My vote goes to Enve, although it looks good with all wheel choices :thumbup: If it had a classic shaped handlebar it would be perfect for my taste.

I love all the wheelsets! Gorgeous set-up, but I agree the Lew's photograph the best....the question is which ride the best?

I'd say they all serve a different purpose and are therefore suited for different races. In terms of personal favorit I actually would tend to call dibs on the Ambrosios.
