And carbonzone is selling them too ::
Would that be considered a 202 competitor?
[for reference] This new depth would be the shallowest of the lot ::

Definitely please post pics. I'm considering these for a disc build as well. Also a fan of Hope hubs.
I ask because I was nearly sold on moving into a tubeless setup, but now I'm not so sure.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
In general, I was not wowed by road tubeless, but I will try again with better tires. I went through 4 or 5 Hutchinson Fusion 3 tires in a short amount of time. Lots of flats. I found that sealant (Stans) really didn't work for me at pressures above 50psi. Anyway, I have heard much better experiences from others, so I will try again. Tire selection is improving.

I am not (yet). They are ready (with tape), but I had a perfectly good set of GP4000S tires to finish up from my previous bike. I will try tubeless (maybe Bontrager) tires once I am through this set. I really prefer the ride quality (and so far, durability) of the 25mm GP4000S to the 23mm Fusion 3 tires I was using before. I have heard great things about the Bonty tubeless tires, though.
Waiting on my frame to arrive (hopefully around the end of the month...), so can't try them out til then, but they certainly look fast! Sealed them up with 19mm tubeless tape (which fits perfectly) and got some Schwalbe Ones mounted, with tubes for now to get everything stretched out. Got a bit of experience with tubeless tyres on my MTB, but the Ones are the toughest I've ever had! Really tight fit, but that should be a good thing once they're set up properly.
Photos coming shortly...

Don't know about Pillar spokes, but I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that LB builds aren't great, so if that's what you end up going for might be worth getting them checked over by a local wheelbuilder? Or ask if they'll send you all the parts seperately (another thing I've seen somewhere...) and have them built up?

No problem - if anyone wants to know anything else I'll try my best to help, doesn't seem to be a lot of info about road disc/tubeless wheels.
Speaking of tubeless, was bored so just set them up! Easiest thing ever! With MTB tubelss you normally have to pump like crazy to get the tyres inflated, with these it was nothing - couple of blasts and they're up! Hardest part was just getting the tyres over the rims - definitely worth getting the little bottle of the Easy Fit stuff.
Really impressed so far, can't wait to try 'em out - they look fast just sitting there.
