Future changes include Time RXS Carbon pedals (very soon) and replacing the stock fork with a 3T Funda Team fork (not so soon). That should see it under 7.5kg. Might even investigate some tubulars for racing (the new 303's in the clydesdale variation look the ticket).
Reason for thinking about the new wheels is purely aesthetic. I feel there's too much going on, so some more subtle decals for the wheels would make the bike look nicer.[/code]

I'd like to know too, as I quite like them
And I'm wondering where the extra weight is, as it seems to my (untrained) eye that it's pretty WW.
Also, an 11-26 cass is an interesting one...I think I'd like to give somthing like that a go on a 53-39 and see how that climbs...
(btw that bike would pretty much fit me perfectly, where do you live again... and how tall are you? Just curious re: the 175mm cranks).
The wheels are very nice. Very stiff, solid in cornering with a nice braking surface. They ride harsher than my 32H 3x Open Pro hand builts, but they feel very fast and rolling along at 35km/h they spin up really easily to race pace and hold their speed well. They are my first set of deep wheels, so I don't have much to compare them to, but they feel like they roll noticeably easier at speeds above 30km/h. The harshness probably comes down more to the 25c tyres on the hand builts vs the 23c on the SRAMs.
I'm actually considering a new set of wheels to replace both the SRAM S60's and the Open Pro's. Something like DT 240 or White Industries H2 hubs on IRD Cadence Aero rims, 28H front and rear. Lighter than both, more aero than the Open Pro's and more usable than the S60's. I'm paranoid about breaking a spoke on the low spoke count wheels and having an unrideable wheel 60kms from home, which is why I got the Open Pro's in the first place. As a flat crit racing wheel though, I can't fault the S60's.
Oh, and I'm 185cm tall.
Just checked out those IDR cadence aero rims - looks very impressive. Especially with the build you're planning for them! You going to order then online or get them from someone in Oz?
Would love to hear how it goes. What approximate cost and weight you thinking it'll come to for the set?
Building them yourself??

Last time I spoke with Cycling edge about such a build they told me $5000 AUD
When I asked Edge Composites directly about pricing in Australia I got an angry and agressive call from Cycling Edge after 6pm on a Sunday night asking me where I got off speaking to Edge and other wheel builders directly and demanding I tell him the names of builders who gave me cheaper quotes...
Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
