Give me a week or so to get everything built up and I will get back to you fellas on how they ride.
Now I'm hoping the Hutchinson Galactik Tubeless tires mount up smoothly or I'm out $100 and have to go back to clincher.
I recieved the wheels today and took them for a 60 km test ride in mixed conditions.
They feel absolutely great - at first i was thinking that they were better than my zipp 404 fc tubular but i will have to do some more training on them and then switch to the 404s again.
I weighed the wheels on a luggage weight (not very accurate) and i came to the conclusion that they are about 1470 g for the naked wheels without rim tape, skewers etc.
I put on a set of GP4000 and some micheling latex tubes and my bike gained about 400 g which i find strange as the 404 FC are not that light. Are GP4000 a heavy tire??
Anyway questions are more than welcome - i paid tax etc. when they arrived but i still think they are great wheels and i would say they ride as a wheel twice as expensive.
I have previously ridden:
- Mavic Cosmic Carbone
- Zipp 404/808 Clincher (pre carbon clincher) (sold)
- Zipp 808 tubular (pre firecrest)
- Zipp 404 Tubular (pre firecrest) (sold)
- Zipp 202 tubular (pre firecrest) (sold)
- Zipp 404 Firecrest tubular
edit: trying to find someway to upload pictures
edit2: try this viewtopic.php?f=10&t=117119&p=998986#p998986
Zipp 404 FC tubular - 1.380 g
CCC - 1.470 g
Weight gain 90 g approx.
The tubulars tires weigh around 250-275g each
Continental GP4000 - 210 g each
Michelin latex tube - 75 g approx
So maybe a worst case 2 * 50 g = 100 g weight gain
So where did the rest come from ??? Skewers will try and change them tomorrow and weigh again.
However the wheels are still great
EDIT: forgot the rim tape - no idea of the weight??? - will veloplugs save weight??
the profile is crazy close to the Zipp 303 FC Clincher. I went to a bike shop that had some on display and compared in person right next to the Zipps and its almost identical. The LB 45 might be ever so slightly thinner, like 1-2 mm.

How much did that run you for and how long did it take for them to build/ship it? Also, what's the complete spec's build? Those hubs seriously looks like BHS' UL66 and UL190.
