Well, after many sleepless nights, should I, shouldn't i.....I decided to take the plunge and purchase the wheelset in the clincher version.
I've had 3 sets to date, all tubs. Had enough hassle with tubs, so opted for a clincher.
Now my G1 and 2 sets of G3's both suffered with the dreaded pulsing issues, and de lamination to the G1 wheelset.
This will of course been addressed with the latest offering from carbonsport with the G4.

Out of the box, let's rock! Mmm, front wheel lateral play in the front hub bearing, and 1.4mm out of true!!
Back to Germany for repair......no no, I'm not going through all that again, back to the store for a full refund.
I'm truly gutted the wheels are, IMHO the nicest looking wheels by far on the market today, but carbonsport just can't get it right!!!
I know the customer service is really good, and to be fair they would sort it all out hassle free, but I can't go through all the inconvenience again and again.

Sorry for the rant..... :cry:
