That's killer! How much do the road wheels weigh and how finicky are the hubs? Do you have to keep adjusting them at all?


They are a touch under 1100 grams, I think. The hubs haven't been a problem at all. In fact I've never adjusted them. I am only 130lbs though, so take that for what it's worth. ; ) I also find that these wheels handle better in cross winds than any other carbon wheel I've ridden, even lower rim depth and heavier wheels. Not sure why that is, but I'll take it.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Don't know why, but it's always nice to have some affirmation that you put together something good!
