EOM size, with ceramic bearings. Now I still have to wait for the new lightweight set of tires from Pirelli.

Awesome! Please share what you feel when riding on new shoes! Mine is going to take a while to be ready, she is under construction in Austin-TX right now, and the builder schedule is looong!

Enjoy!

Looking forward to ride reports...

Anybody weigh them???
Yes, at the scale with ceramic bearings its shows 4.02 lbs for the front one, OEM size.

I am still waiting for the rear tire to arrive, and haven't opened the rear wheel package just yet. I will put it on the scale as soon as I open the box.

Cheers!

Love the look of those but aren't they like $1500? At half the cost of the bike it's certainly a stretch but... Also did you notice any improvement with the ceramic bearings? I've been thinking those are my next upgrade.

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...
