Can you please elaborate? This is something we can't work with.


Hed Ardennes Plus SL Disc Brakes. That's what I would buy if I were in the position of the original poster.

And why would you buy these wheels? We are extremely curious to find out.

They're actually really effective. I used them all of last season in CX and I didn't once notice any rubbing on my disc brakes. They aren't ask quick to remove as QR's, but for bikes that aren't blessed with TA (like my first-year Crockett), they really take up the slack, compared to the QR's that came on there, originally.
