I'm curious what others will say but I would not use chain degreaser on a brake rotor. Brake cleaner is alcohol and I think the only thing you should allow to touch the pads. Once they get...

Enve AG25 wheels are 25 mm internal, under 1500 gm for the wheelset, and I got mine last summer for $1550. And the rims are actually made in the US - that has to be worth something!

Have you counted the cost of eTube wires at $27 each ($150), junction A ($115) and B ($30), battery ($125), Bluetooth module ($90) and charger ($125)? That is almost $700.
