Damjan, I didn't do anything to the brake track. Why do you ask? Nemesis rims are not "machined" like say, a Mavic Open Pro. But I am very pleased with the braking. Had almost forgotten what a treat it is to brake on a nice alloy surface as opposed to carbon. And no, I have no need for disk brakes on a bike like this.
My classic wheelset is made from Mavic Reflex rims, which needed a bit of time to get that real stopping power.
At the beginning, there was like only a half brake power. Not to mention when it was wet....
So I thought you maybe brushed it to have all the stopping power from day one.
Arnt the rims ceramic coated my f20s are and have worn away which looks taty thinking I'm gona sand them are they your fist set of roubaix tyres how munch puncher protection do they offer I wonder. Like the paint job by the way. Has anyone managed to keep the ceramic coating on there rims.
Headfirst we go against the grain

As for the puncture resistance of the Roubaixs, and Veloflex Carbons for that matter, I am very pleased. On my third set of Carbons and have yet to have to fix a puncture on the road. They seem fairly cut resistant as well, unlike the vitttoria open Corsa Cx clinchers that I used to ride some time ago.
I ask because I originally built mine on black record hubs and I was not so satisfied with the color. This is not "important" but somewhat I dislike esthetically
when built with black record hubs,
- the silver spokes doesn't look good with the black hubs
- the black spokes doesn't look good with the gray rims
The silver Record hubs are difficult to find and expensive, so I went with Centaur Century gray hubs, the colors fit better and the hubs are as good as the Record, only a bit heavier.
here is a pic of mine ( with NOS Centaur hubs and GP4 rims, Silver DT Revos and Alu nipples ), on the Cross bike where also match the bike color
Here's a couple pics:
And here's a head on shot of the front end witht the Garmin 800 mounted on the Barfly mount. Seems I forgot any sort of head on shot in the original postings...

Apparently Campag are going stainless again as, surprise surprise, not all of us want black hubs.
Wow, that's big news. Can you share your source for this info, or are there more details about what's coming? Thanks!
I built a set of Nemesis on silver Chorus hubs and love the look. New C hubs in silver would be awesome -- more so if the used the old tooling
It did come from someone who works at one of the Australian Campag distributor, so he's not inclined to make it up.
So chances could be he was told when he was last in Italy or on the phone to them, however they are not at production level. Really don't know. Sorry.
