To my knowledge, the rims are made inhouse at Schmolke.
My 45TLO were hands downs one of the best deep section wheels I owned.
The spinup was instant and the way they held speed was like no other wheelset I ran.

I'm hoping the revise the rims and come out with TLO v2.0. My 45TLO wheels were right around 1000g.

Who makes the wheels?, my brother want TLO45 tubular with 45 / 150 Tune hubs. For 72 kilos , I advice him SL 70/170 because I think will be more stiff. Is possible make TLO rims with 45 and 150 hubs Tune? A lbs said me TLO and SL rims have different cross pattern.
