Has anyone any experience with this wheel?
I want to know if they can be trued and serviced?
They seem to be a great clincher but at that sort of money (£3350 stg), i need to know i can get a good few years out of them with a bit of maintance etc.
If they can be serviced, how much would it cost?
Has been covered, please use search
service cost depends on what needs fixing, the manual says some minor repairs they may even do free once out of warranty, you'll pay for shipping still
aside from warranty there's an optional program called service up, it extends warranty and includes crash damage repair
it's all on the website...
btw, i would not buy in uk, get them from another eu country, as long as the dealer is official lightweight you are still fully covered and it's a *lot* cheaper, i just got some lw tub wheels from bike24.de, excellent service and saved a bundle
(using Lightweight pads) braking is fine, no scary moments really even on some pretty steep 20% gradient descents even when wet. I Haven't tried other pads yet.
Obviously they are not as good as alu rims and no carbon rim ever will be but they will stop you. You'll learn to live with them and braking in the wet will become a predictable experience the more you do it.
I normally swap out the front for a Dura-ace C24 (this might change to a Ventoux clincher if CS ever make one ) if winds > 15mph are in the weather forecasts, as gusty cross winds are a bit (lot) more "thrilling" than wet braking. But the back stays in there full time.

Not much hope of that. But perhaps a GIPFELSTURM* clincher could be in the offing.WeightySteve wrote:this might change to a Ventoux clincher if CS ever make one
