Pretty sure my weight was with tubeless valve stems installed. Anyways, how was the ride? Like how loud they are?

For folks still on regular clinchers, what tyres are you running?

On my 40Ds I've got a Spesh Turbo Gripton SWorks 24 on the front. Went on really easily and meets the 105% rule. On the rear same tyre in a 26

I got hunt wheels and thought those hubs were loud compared to 2 sets of dt swiss wheels. Then I got the drive 40s and was impressed with the sound.

Best of luck if you order from them. They shipped me the wrong wheels, admitted it, then told me I needed to wait until after the new year (Feb 4 - Feb 18) and I'm still waiting, they keep telling me they "need more days", they're waiting for the person who got "my" wheels to receive them. They suck - back to farsports.

Horrible news for me, I really hope this doesn't mean price increase

I rode the drive 40v rim brake version of these for the Haute Route Alps a couple of years ago and they performed well - so virtually every major col in the Alps up and down. I also have the BWT series rim brake for daily riding - not sure what happened to that series - it was their wave version. Not very light but not expensive and a very stiff wheelset.
