The 28C Vittoria Corsa's will fit, yeah? I know it is optimized for 25C.

SLR01 Disc.
It's all about the adventure :o .

I have gotten the SLR01 and 28C will fit but I wouldn't recommend it for frame paint damage.

Why not the DA crankset?

That’s a SRM Origin

Yes why did you prefer it over the Dura Ace crankset with powermeter?

I have a SLR Disc module on order, dropping later this month. My question about wheels. I'm keen on the DT Dicut 35 that comes OEM, but I hear they are a bit flexi. Any one have problems with the DT Swiss not as stiff as would like?

My considerations are:
- DT Swiss PRC 1100 Dicut 35 (work well with the bike, but concerned to flexi)
- 3T Discus C35 Team Stealth (Lightest, but don't look so aero)
- Enve 3.4 SES Dt Hubs (Not a fan of the aestetic)
- Dura-Ace C40 (concern about the bearings)

Any opinions welcome.
Thanks :-)

I have the C40 disc and i am not so happy with them. Creaking noises and very flexy.

I have the DT Swiss ERC 1100 Dicut 47 DB and the DT Swiss Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut 48 DB and love them both. Quit light, great DT Swiss quality, ceramic bearings, fast (ARC) and strong (ERC). DT Swiss has hight quality products.

Just built my SLR01 Disc, and went with BikeAhead Biturbo wheels. I previously had them on a Storck Aernario - a bike not known for its comfort - and the ride was rather harsh.
On the BMC they are just perfect: ultra-stiff, wide with 21mm internal width, light for climbing (1150g) and reasonably aero. IMO, they fit the bike aesthetically quite well too. I have nothing but great things to say about BikeAhead customer service, and I'm seriously considering buying a second set for my gravel bike.

Thanks so much for the advice.

- OCD, yes my LBS is steering me away from the C40's, thanks for the heads up.
- TonyM, do the ERC fit well on your SLR01, as I like that depth of rim over the 35. But concerned about clearances.
- JHeiro, the Biturbos look great, and that weight is fantastic. Any data on aero efficiency? Less aero than spokes or more?

Interestingly the DT Swiss Spline 35 wheel-set (that comes with SLR01 One) is approx 80 grams lighter than the DiCut.

Don't have any aero data on the Biturbos. In fact, haven't seen many reviews online either. I've had mine for two years now, and they are my go-to wheels when heading for the Alps or Pyrenees.

Compared to Zipp 303 Firecrest (the wheels I replaced with the Biturbos) I'd say these are much stiffer, less susceptible to crosswinds, and accelerate a lot better. As for aerodynamics, the Zipps might have a slight advantage, but the Biturbos are definitely no slouches either. They do make a nice "whoosh whoosh" sound when up to speed, just like much deeper wheels.
