The system 30 seem to hit all the right spots for me: relatively light, relatively aero, and affordable.
Looking to do a little bit of everything with these wheels (hillclimbs, tt's, centurys, rr's, etc..). They will be used for training and racing.
Although I haven't done this yet I am going to hit up psimet to see what he can do. Those H plus Son rims on his website are intriguing but I can't find a lot on them.
Based on n=2 with the H plus son SL-42's. They build very nicely and have been bombproof for the first thousand miles under my wide load. The rim weight can vary a bit more than I'd really like, but that is life.
Psimet built my PT wheel for me and it has been perfect so far. He builds a very nice wheel and was very easy to get in contact with to hammer out build decisions. Once the wheel was done it was well packaged and shipped promptly.
If you search I had a thread or two about them. The rear with cx-rays,brass nipples and an SL hub went 1200 flat and the front with 24 cx-rays, brass nipples and the DT240s hub came in at 800 flat so they are not exactly light.
The brake track is anodized after machining so it is not beautiful once you ride them since the pads remove the anodizing and don't do a perfect job.
