It's been about a week since having them done. The ride is smoother then I expected. Very comfortable and stiff. Went 28/32 for a more stable ride. Glad I did it. Here's what they look like done.

Here's the bike they are on. It's a 2011 Cannondale Super Six loaded! Love this bike. It's hella fun to ride. I only wish I had more time to ride it.

Their pretty sharp looking IMO. And the braking is amazing. Love the all black. I just need a month off to just ride and not work. I guess I can dream.

You do know the black will wear off the brake track, right?

That is, if you use the brakes...

I do know that. I do live in California my friend where the conditions are very sunny and not as wet as everywhere else. I have a buddy that has the same rims as me and has had them for over 2 years and the black brake surface still looks amazing for the use he puts into his H Plus Son rims.

Oh apologizes - looking at the full scale picture I can see the larger DNS flange. I thought I saw drilled/punched holes in the cassette body but I was wrong and hence my wrong conclusion.

How much do they weigh?
