I have been eyeing these up for a while; have emailed Sean a couple of times as he is bringing some new rim profiles out very soon (plus i think some with hard anodized (coloured) brake tracks). If you search the forum you should find some comments on the current range - from what i have seen the feedback is pretty positive. The one thread that tends to develop is whether it would be better to have something custom built as may be cheaper/lighter.

Sorry the other point is that they should be available with dark grey decals!

i thought about custom built for lighter.. but most would be up in the 1K price range, so i prefer lightweight and light on the wallet.. :)

He's been saying that for over a year now...

I gave up and laced my own 23mm wide clinchers from Brandon (bikehubstore.com). No dealing with shipping overseas, etc.
