You're being paranoid, I'm using standard clinchers, on my wheelset, the Continental Attack/Force combination (23F/25R)

Sweet, thanks - i have michelin latex 60mm tubes and gp4000's in 25mm here so will run with that! Did they mount ok?

Mounted nice and easily, also using the michelin latex 60mm, but really there isn't quite enough of the valve showing for my track pump to get a nice seal, it's fine if your pump connects to the valve by screwing it on though

Thank you, I appreciate the response. Bugger, I have a spare screw on pump but it’s a pain especially with how often you have to inflate latex tubes.

To give you an idea, this is how much of the Michelin Latex 60mm valve is exposed from the rim

Arrived, finally after a wee battle with customs.. Set off yesterday Kom hunting and definitely felt faster. Did manage to get several PR’s. Not sure how responsive they feel up hills - I think the spokes could flex a little more than the straight pull from my fulcrum wheels but it’s early days. Braking is a non-issue in the dry. They are smooth and responsive under brakes and have that great carbon whirrrr. 25mm GP 4000 s11 mounted easily by hand and the sidewalls fit into the groove with a satisfying thunk around 70 psi.
I ran 100/95 psi rear/front and felt a little harsh. What is everyone running? I’m 72kg so not too heavy, might try 90/85 next.
Thanks for the help and advice, I’m happy as with the wheels. They came nice and true in the box. What’s the opinion on the Venn hubs? Will they last in the rain... I’d like to have these as my everyday wheels and get my $$$ worth out of them.

Michelin 60mm valve latex tube expose long enough of valve on 50.7mm with Bontrager Turbo Charger pump to bite on easily. I think another 2mm less space and it wouldn't work.

It really depend on how much space your pump need if it is enough or not.

My pump (lezyne) has no problem with the Michelin 60mm latex tubes. They are the perfect length IMO

No, not yet. The new factory is now up and running so hopefully we will find the time soon to push forward with the r&d initiatives that go beyond stabilizing the manufacturing process.
Any updates on this? And rim-only availability of Rev 507 - is this planned?

Got mine yesterday, chucked some GP4000 23mm tyres on (running inner tubes) and took them for a short spin. Happy with them so far, very little flex (72kg) and roll nice and smooth, breaking is great in the dry as expected. :thumbup:

Bike will be mainly used as my crit bike so weight not really an issue.

Sharing this screen grab picture from facebook. Too bad, no details given on this image so can't say anything about it. Anyone here had the same experience with the 35TCC / TCD?
