Enve 45 clincher w.Chris King R45 hubs
was scared of the color at first, but it worked well with the bike. besides, it was only to demo them.
Here is the wheel I will be ordering today (PS so i could get a better idea of what I was getting.)
HED C2 Clincher
CX Ray Sapim spokes (24/28)
chris king hubs (Most likely black)
this isn't my set, but this is what they will look like.
HED belgium C2 rim
Black Chris king R45 hubs
Cx Ray sapim spokes 24/28 (Swapping them out for the new Super sapim bladed spokes when they come in next month)
I'm stoked about the enve wheel, but part of me wishes I would have never ridden it. If I would have never ridden the enve's, the C2 wheel probably would have provided me with full stoke and 100% satisfaction, BUT thats not the case and my feelings were tainted. Call me a sell out, say I was baited or whatever else, at the end of the day I feel happy and excited.
Jude (My wheel builder) had told me since day 1 once we started talking about the C2 build that if I didn't like them, I could bring them back and pay the difference for the enve's. I hadn't felt bad about the thought of bringing them back until I did. After my ride I went straight up the road to her shop and brought the wheels in. When she saw me come in with the wheels she was like, "is this a good thing or a bad thing!?" We talked about my experience and asked her if the deal for the enve was still on the table. she said, "OF course!". I told her that Even though I wanted to go ahead and purchase the enve's I was feeling bad because the cost of the parts to build the C2 wheel along with the time she spent to do it. She told me to knock it off and that she wouldn't have offered something she didn't feel she could follow through on. She said she will have no problem selling this wheelset for 10% off. (So in case anyone is interested, you can contact her to go over details). She is going to give the enve wheels a once over and service everything, put on some valve extendeds and I will pick them up tomorrow and bring them to their new home! It was DEFINITELY more than I EVER anticipated spending, but I'm ok with it and have no doubt that I will have years of enjoyment.
