New Rims out next month- DT Swiss RR 1.2s ....Will anyone here be getting them?

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

Just curious they sound extremely high quality and massively bulletproof.

I'm using 36/36 hole arrowheads right now because I got the black 36 hole 105 hubs on sale at performance when they were really cheap. They have proven to be extremely durable even with the little WS XL14 spokes I'm using.

These are lower spoke count, but honestly at 30.7mm and 510 grams weight weenie types would probably like lower spoke count drillings available.

Still I could see a 28/32 spoke set-up being extremely tough for every day use. Just use the thin butted spokes if you are worried about ride harshness. They are more durable anyway.

These seem like really nice rims because not only are they Swiss made and welded, etc they also have the sidewall wear indicators.
