Carl : Thank you for the updates and communications during these difficult times. I have built the rims with DT Swiss C180 hubs, CX-Ray spokes, and Sapim Polyax nipples. I have fitted Schwalbe Pro One 28mm tubeless tyres. The result is a brilliant set of wheels! I am very happy with the way the wheels handle - they feel very responsive to steering and acceleration; they also deal well with the bumpy roads we have in the countryside in Surrey (UK). Braking in dry weather is fantastic (better than aluminium rims); I have not yet tried them in the rain.

David : The overall experience with my new AR46 wheels has been fantastic in every respect. Communication throughout ordering to delivery has been superb, ensuring any technical questions are answered fully. The build quality is great and having ridden them for the first time yesterday, they feel light on climbs and roll incredibly well. I could not be happier with my wheels and would like to thank all those at Light Bicycle team for their help throughout.

Alex : Just got round to finally reviewing my AR46 disc wheelset with DT 350 hubs. Received the wheels mid-March after some COVID-related misfortunes, and clocked 1500 km so far, running them tubeless with Conti 5kTL 25's. These are gorgeous wheels, really well-made, and the striking 12k satin finish has really grown in me. The wheels are running true out of the box, and however hard I try I couldn't detect any flex (I'm a reasonably powerful 74kg guy who enjoys sprinting off the traffic lights). The aero gains are also noticeable; granted, I run them on a new bike with aggressive geometry, but I can really feel how well they hold speed. My overall setup (new bike, aggressive fit and aero wheels) has given me about 2 kph average speed increase on the same heart rate, alternatively, I can run the same average speed (same course, same fitness level) on 10 bpm less average. Very impressed and very happy with my purchase.

Nicholas : So pleased to get the wheels. My MacBook also fried itself this week so needed the wheels to keep me sane when dealing with Apple

David : I just love the look the LB rims give my Salsa Warbird and the wheels were the icing on the cake. They are Lazer sharp at finding a line when I'm riding off-road and my favourite part of my build.

David : A few pics of my Salsa Warbird v3 gravel bike. The wheelset is the LB 46mm deep, 29mm wide and 22.5mm internal hookless carbon rim, 24 straight pull Sapim CX-Ray spokes f+r, brass nipples laced to Hope RS4 Hubs. I love these wheels. They make the bike look the biz in my humble opinion. But more importantly the bike rides amazing with these wheels and it just begs to go fast on off-road gravel decents, with nearly 70kph my record so far! I have fitted 40mm Schwalbe G-One Allrounds which measured 42mm at 35psi which were good. The wheels are currently wearing 38mm Paneracer G-King's tanwalls which measure exactly 38mm when you first set them up but eventually puff up to 40.5mm at 35psi! The groupset is Shimano Ultegra R8000 mechanical and has the RX805 rear clutch mech. I wanted proper off-road 2x sub-compact gearing, and a power meter. So my choice was the PraxisWorks Zayante Direct Mount crankset with 4iiii Power Meter and 48-32 Levatime chainrings. As I live in the UK, and although we don't really have big mountains, very little of the UK is flat, especially where I live near the Peak District, and so I need all the help I can get. I have taken advantage of the fact that the latest generation Shimano rear mechs will work with a lot bigger cassettes than they officially recommend and without mech extenders. I fitted an XT M8000 11-40 mtb cassette for excellent climbing capability when I have the bike fully loaded with bikepacking luggage. The chain is a KMC X11 SL Gold chain. For the cockpit I have a Salsa flared carbon Cowbell bar fitted to the brilliant Redshiftsports Shockstem. It gives an extra bit cushion from 20mm of vertical movement! I forgot to mention the Hope RX4 Brake Calipers and Hope rotors which are unbelievable with their wet conditions stopping power! Get these setup correctly and they are awesome and give me more modulation and power from than my Shimano mtb brakes. As I have some extra cushion up front I wanted the same at the rear so another awesome product from Ergon with their CF3 seatpost is fitted which gives up to 30mm fore-aft movement and helps reduce fatigue from vibration. My current saddle is the carbon railed Fabric Scoop shallow pro. I'm still looking for a saddle that is "comfortable" all day after 10hrs! My bottle cages are KingCage/Woolftooth Morsecage Titanium. The headset is a Cane Creek carbon. Peadals are Look S-track with custon titanium spindles with ceramic bearings. All bolts used titianium where possible. Well I think that's most of it so I hope that everyone likes it as much as I do and appreciate me posting the build spec. If you have any questions then fire away. Thanks.

James : Just wanted to let you know that my wheels arrived on time and everything was in good order. I fitted them immediately and have now ridden 250km or so, over 5 rides, with no problems whatsoever. In fact I’m really DELIGHTED with them, as I’m enjoying a very noticeable speed advantage (also helped by new Conti 5000 tyres) and I’ve had no issues with handling or braking, albeit riding only in good weather so far. They also look fabulous, top quality wheels both on and off the bike.
