I have been wanting them since before they were available. I got anxious, and bought the K-Wings instead. I am so happy, I got a great deal on them as well. Over $100 off of retail. Sniped them on ebay with 4 seconds to go. :D

These came in today. A far cry from the advertised 210g, but better than the 271g they are replacing, which were also advertised as 210g. Merry Christmas bike weenies!

Also the new rubbers dropped a bit of weight. Complete wheels with cassette, and skewer.

Me too, I really think they fit well on an aero bicycle as well. When they were finally released I had to have a set for this bike. :)

I just have to figure out how I will mount my bartop shifters to them for my Di2........

How is it with your hands on the tops? Comfortable? How is the routing of the brake and shift cables? Can you add pics of that?

Luckily for me the 40cm ones aren't available until March so that gives me some time to save up some cash.

You can't really wrap your thumb around very comfortably, but I usually don't really grip on the tops anyway. I just kinda rest my hands there. They were just fine for that. I'll take some detailed shots of the cable routing for you. I liked the way they were routed a bit better than my old K-Wings.
