Nick Riewe : Hi Nancy, This week I finished building my bike. Here are a couple pics as you requested. I am very happy with your rims....they roll very light and fast. My local wheel builder was very impressed with your rims and mentioned that he has built many wheel sets with Light Bike rims, and in all cases people are very happy with the rims. Great work to you guys!! My bike came in at 18.8 lbs...decent weight for a 19" 650b bicycle. I am waiting for Rock Shox to make the SID WC XX 120mm fork in 650b size so we can loose even more weight. Yes, Ive ridden them a few times. The rims roll very well. Super light and fast. I am running tubeless. I seated the tires using inner tubes for one ride, then pulled the tubes and filled with Stan's no-tube sealant. There are no leaks at the rims and the tires are staying seated on the bead. We normally ride rough and fast terrain with lots of tree roots.

David Snaith : my 2013 R3 with the new 45mm U-shaped wheels. I have ridden about 200km on them now and they have been amazing! Thank you so much! The wheels were perfectly true right out of the box. The bike is now lighter and stiffer and accelerates much faster. The aerodynamics of the wheels, at least subjectively, feel like it has raised my top speed by a few km/h. Even in gusty crosswinds, the bike feels stable and predictable. And as a bonus, the ride is noticeably smoother and more comfortable. I am using 23mm Vittoria Rubino Pro tyres and SwissStop Black Prince pads with about 1mm toe-in. There is plenty of clearance for the tyres and so far everything seems to be working perfectly.

Dave Seamons : I have been a professional bike mechanic going on 18 years. I have owned and ridden lots of bikes over the years, spent thousands of dollars on products to help me enjoy the ride. I have never made a change to my bike that was as noticeable and awe inspiring as these carbon hoops. Simply AMAZING! Thank you! 40 miles in since I built them yesterday. Stiff, light, responsive, smooth, efficient! Love them!
