Got my new more accurate scales today and after re-weighing the tyres and wheels I've bloody well lost 2.6g already. 1g on the wheels and 1.6g on the tyres. Just my luck. Lol.

Extralite Streeters skewers weigh 29g (pair) and works well.

For a two gram saving I'll stay with my Obermayer skewers.

I hope your healing quickly, and get a chance to try out those wheels. I had a set of the older 24’s and I really liked them. The breaking surface is really good, and the weight is nothing short of spectacular. I suspect many of us are looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them ASAP.

Thanks. Yeah I can't wait to try the wheels. Hopefully in a month or two I'll be ready.

I beg to differ. Lol.
Really hoping to get the bike stripped and rebuilt next Thursday, just depends if two more parcels arrive in time.

Don't use other pads than Ax/ Black prince on Ax rims.
You'll void warranty!
I have talked to Ax about this.

Aha, when i spoke to Nils (a bit of a time ago i admit) he told me only their own pads are approved.
According to SwissStop, these are standard BP.
What pads are these that Nils gave you?
