Experiences with Boyd Carbon 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

Experiences with Boyd Carbon wheels?

Have a set of Boyd Vitesse rims already... and I am looking to purchase a set of aero carbon tubulars for racing next year. Do any of you guys have experience with the Boyd carbon rims?

The rims are 21mm wide which seems to be narrower than many others... Just wondering what your experiences are.

My everyday fairweather wheelset is the boyd 50mm carbon. Great wheels, I have put almost 9000 km on them.

I think I'd go 46 to 50mm as well. Can you compare your Boyd's to any other carbon wheels that you've ridden?
