If you haven't decided yet about the wheels, here it is a pic of Time + LW Ventoux:

I absolutely love the look of the Ventoux wheels, but they aren't aero & from what I have heard there is just nothing special about how they ride. Now a set of hand-built wheels can easily be lighter for less money & they will be more aero & have a better ride quality. Oh ya, they can have spokes replaced too.

Go with a set of Edge 45's & Extralight or Tune hubs. I'd choose a Mig 45 & Mag 150. That'd be just down right sexy.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Absolutely love the carbon weave under the paint - as a fan of 'naked' bikes, this one is going to take the biscuit!

Starbike delivers-
327 grams for 172.5 compact Claviculas
74 grams for BB cups
29 grams for SRAM 36T chainring

As for the wheels- The Eastons are out- they were sold. The LW Ventouxs are out for their lack of aero qualities and not replaceable spokes.

I am leaning heavily towards Edge 45s or AX 42s at the moment- light, aero, customizable for stiffness and replaceable spokes.

As for brakes its either 7900 or THM Fibula's if they are strong enough.

This is still going strong as one hell of a build. As for the brakes. I suppose you can go with the THM brakes. Nils has seen them already as his brother has a set on his weightweenie bike. Nils found these brakes very very impressive even more impressive than the latest Gravitas. I would go for it, especially since they are the lightest.
As for the wheels, AX Lightness is all you need, I can truly advise them to you. As you know I have the 24mm, although a set of High rims are very attractive I expect a low profile set would fit the Time better.

Perfect choice of cranks - for the wheelset, I'd go for rims that, like your cranks, match the beautiful carbon weave of the frameset that you've uncovered...

I would go with the EE brakes before the D/A brakes. Lighter & they work much better than the other weenie brakes.

I don't think it really matters what wheels you put on at this point, the bike is already super squirt material.
