So far w/ several c-4 hubs they've all come in close enough to their given names.. these being FH-55 and RH-170 (campy). The ti QRs are 54g.

These came w/ steel bearings, and feel slicker than dolphin sweat!
the problem? could be the nut behind the handlebars.

I have those- they work- to a point. Once I get below 22-25 (F) I find they don't work so well.

Thanks guys, 22F doesn't sound to bad? I have some lobster gloves that are warm well below that, they get to warm at temperatures much higher though. The layer system looks like a good way not to get to hot or to cold during longer rides.

Move that review into a new thread in the Review area of the forum. It deserves its own thread.

That's because you can't. :wink:

I thought it was time to go a bit deeper than 45mm. Not sure how often I'll use the front one, but we shall see! Haven't had them in my hands yet but will race them tomorrow. Front is 940 grams with skewer, tyre and valve extension, so not too shabby for a cheap rim. Could have done it a smidge cheaper if I'd built them myself, but went the safe route by not using a no name ebay guy!

Not sure what my mum was thinking with the pink cushion...

I would ride those every day. I had some Hed Jet 9's a couple of years ago and I rode them for every ride I did, all year long. Even in the wind. :banana:
