Got any pics with the wheels on the bike?

Also, do you run a different rear sprocket?

I bet chain adjustment is even easier with lighter wheels, i'm guessing a weight savings of about 35-40%

Hey freemund,

I don't think these guys are active anymore. There are two active members off the top of my head that I can think of that would be able to answer your questions.

@jwiseman Has a great overall bike pic on his Intro Thread

Similarly @colticus has pics and discussion on his latest build thread

Here are some pix of mine. Wheels are beautiful. Real works of art, and a huge improvement in overall handling, acceleration, and braking due to the huge savings in rotational mass.

I run stock gearing in the back and a 15T front. Best for my overall set up with engine mods, roads, weight, and riding style.

Never thought about chain adjustment being easier, but I run an accessory swingarm with integral adjusters anyway.

Im very happy with them, but I should be - they are extremely expensive...
