James: Just got my AR465 LB Wheels built and have done 100km on them and they are stiff/strong & roll smooth. They also are cosmetically easy on the eyes as per photos. One thing I have noticed with braking with LB Blue brake pads is that it could have more bite as braking does require abit more work. However this could be because they aren't worn in yet (only 100km done so far) Bike: Lynskey R360 Titanium Wheels & Hubs: AR45 LB + Chris King R45 Hubs Groupset: Shimano Ultegra 6800 Cheers James Love from Melbourne Australia ❤️

Raf: Made a special order for a wheel build of AR465 Non Disc rims together with DT SWISS 240 EXP quick release hubs. The rims have a Grooved Graphene Surface and don't have holes for easier tubeless setup. I finished off with Sapim CX Ray Black straight pull spokes and Oil slick decals. I also ordered the LB rim brakes. I had to re-adjust my brakes as this rim is wider compared to my previous wheels. Currently I'm running Continental GP5000 TL 28mm tyres on my Eddy Merckx EMX-5 bike. So far I have ridden about 650km with them and extremely happy with my purchase. I have yet to find out the stopping power in the rain. The rims very much suit the wider 28mm tyre and roll very fast. I'm very impressed with the hubs as well. The buying process was very smooth. It took some time for the rims to be manufactured, but it's very easy to track and one finished I was surprised how quickly they were shipped to South Africa.

Hi, I am interested in the Falcon pro wheelset and after the build, the cost comes out to USD 1,000. I live in the US, can you let me know what the shipping cost is and whether there is a duty tax added? In addition, if there is an issue with the wheels, how does the return or replacement work? Do i need to pay for shipping of the old wheel etc... After the order is made, what is the general wait time for build/delivery? thanks.

Hi Paul, Thanks for reaching out! 1. The shipping cost is USD109.02 by MTS-Sea, Tax included. 2. You don't need to return the old rim back for replacement. We will send you a replacement after our assessment of the case. The only thing you need to do is send us the serial number and photos of the issue. Our standard warranty for AR465 road disc 700C is 5 years. Let me know if you have any further questions. You can order the wheels from our website. Or I can send you the order via email to proceed. Thanks, Lightbicycle
