I’m still testing the wheels but I took them out for a 3hr ride thrusday. They are very stiff. They are a little lighter then my old wheelset but roll a lot easier. I took them up hills and in sprints and so far they are awesome. I know they are clinchers but hey I still don’t feel comfortable with tubies. I’m sure next year I’ll spring for some tubulars.

Other than that nice bike....
I put them on to put air in the tires and just didnt take them off. My first set of deep rims also so i just asked for valve extenders and didnt know they had different sizes. Newbie...

yep. the frame i've ridden for a few months already. the wheels are the only new things on the bike. I've had the Kestrel bars for about 18 months. so far they are plenty stiff. i'd recommend them....
