Hi... Could you show us this?
BTW, with 190 and CX Ray, what is the lightest recommended rim? (For a 78kg MTB Racer! )
funny, i was considering machining another SSL batch soon
we've been "field testing" our 1st batches of 10g & 15g centrelock adapters for 6 months, well over 1500 miles now without any problems at all, they seem to be perfectly safe for XC use. however we haven't tested anything heftier than a drilled 180mm steel Magura rotor & have mostly been using 180mm & 160mm Scrub rotors
the SSL centrelock adapters are between 9g raw & 10g matte white ceramic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/culturespo ... 780780325/
the SL centerlock adapters are between 15g raw & 16g matte white ceramic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/culturespo ... 068055299/

I spent the last few nights building them, with the rims weighing in at 239.2g and 241.2g.
28h front. 89g hub, wheel weight 434g
28h rear wheel, 170g hub, wheel weight 524g
Any update on this wheelset? Tires staying on, rims holding up?
This year I'm taking a different approach to my race bike. Whereas before, I rode ok in the technical parts despite of my light and flexy bike, because I'm very good technically. This year, I want a bike that lets me really benefit from my technical skills, and let me utilize it to the fullest. As a result, I've re-built the wheels with Crest rims. Super stiff, and still only 1132g! The bike is now an Intense Spider2 with SID 120 up front and 130mm of accelleration- and bump friendly VPP action in the rear. Weight will be around 9.5kg in summer trim, and it absolutely screams on the downhills and difficult climbs.
Here's the opening post for reference...

How are these wheels going? Did you re-use the extralite hubs? Spokes?
1132g is an awesome weight for a Crest wheelset. I'd love to hear more about that wheelset.
