    They're finally on!

    And they rock! Only downside is that they are a ***** to get tires on/off them. I actually broke a michelin tire lever and totally bent the other 2 up.

    Anyway, pics...







    I'm hoping to get it weighed soon. Probably be around the 33-35lbs (16kg) mark... lol

    Good stuff, Ben. Let us know how much weight you saved over your previous wheelset. I'm kinda interested in some lighter wheels myself .

    Very nice sir. Whaddaya think 'bout those there E540's?


    If all goes well with my ebay sales, I'll be building a new wheelset soon too.

    Hope Pro II with DT EX 5.1d and DT Super comp spokes.

    Should be a pretty tough wheelset and still save me over a pound.

    Probably cost me in the neighbeehoo of $520-$620 (depending on where I go)

    They might be lighter, i'll have to see. When i ordered in the wheelset, I ordered DT single butted spokes, but they didn't have any, so they gave me double butted for free. Same strength as SB, just lighter. So i probably saved a few grams there... lol. As you can see, i'm really not much of a weight weenie.

    They look good and run smooth but are so hard to get tires on and off, thats about all i can say. I haven't done a proper ride with them yet.

    Haha, yeh summer is good But not when it reaches above 100F, sometimes 114F. Just way too hot to do anything. Good riding weather is between 68F and 90F for me. Giving the wheels a proper ride on sunday, so will let you know.
