Light Bicycle Wheels

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Well, sort of a bummer because I just bought a set of LB wheels with DT Swiss 240 exp hubs. 10% wouldn't be a big deal though.

Ordered at the end of March and arrived mid June. I went on a week-long tour a week later, so didn't get to try them out until early July. So far, I love 'em! Some people do not like the loud sound, but I do. I can't honest say that I am faster, because there are so many factors, including 6 months of riding.

Great company to work with, and the shipping was in no way their fault. They sat in L.A. for a week in some warehouse....

I went with LB wheels because they are completely customizable. I wanted DT Swiss hubs, colored spoke nipples, and a super-light build (because I don't weigh much) and LB delivered.
