Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

I'm currently looking at the Reynolds Aero 65, new Zipp 404 Firecrest, and Bontrager Aeolus XXX 6. Not much info on the new Zipp's and Reynolds Aero 65. The Bontragers have some positive reviews. These wheels will be on a 2018 De Rosa SK Pininfarina. My original plan was to use my favorite wheels, Bora Ultra 50 clinchers. But I think I prefer something deeper. Let me know what you think?

Yeah just saw those. I have a pair of super lightweight DT Swiss Spline 28mm Mon Chaserral clinchers on my climbing bike. Incredible wheels. Any good reviews?

I have the DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut 48 DB on my F10 and they are fast and good in the crosswinds. I should have gone for the 62mm actually.
The 1100 Dicut have ceramic bearings. The ARC are the aero wheels.

Here more on these wheels:
