Wow, now we're shooting guys down because they had the gall to buy something inferior to... Boras?
I'm pretty sure the guiding notion behind this thread was to give an overview of a guy's new $1,000 multipurpose wheel, not dismiss it because it falls short of the top few factory-built race tubulars money can buy.
Maybe the OP didn't express the idea perfectly, but he did post impressions and photos of something real that he bought, and we should have more user-impression posts with photos of actual gear on the forum, not less. Even when flawed, user impressions are worth more than pontification about theoretical advantages, "what should I buy" hand-wringing, and hype about vaporware.
So... if we can get an internal rim measurement, weigh-in, and ride review in this thread, it would re-focus the discussion and answer some lingering questions about the 9000/C-24.
Will somebody step up to the plate? OP?
No, now we're responding to the question the OP posted.
Pleased the poll was removed as per my initial comment.
Agree with you re. ride impressions. If the individual has plenty of sensible reference points then there is value in that definitely.
