Couldn’t agree more about Light Bicycle. Great wheels at a good price. They will build any spoke count with just about any hub you want. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy another set of wheels from them.

I would also make sure you have the DuoTap sensor. It may just be DuoTrap ready. In 2017 I bought a high end Trek and it just had a dummy installed. Had to buy the actual sensor.
