New Site Coming Soon

For those who have noticed that the Pacenti Cycle Design web site is down, never fear, we'll have a new site up and running very soon.

Cheers,

Lots of mistakes, I know... but the full site will be up in a few weeks with everything corrected.

Best regards,

Looking forward to the new website. I'm enjoying and riding hard on a set of new Pacenti Forza rims, laced to Wheels Mfg. hubs by Mr. Ergott.

How does the Forza compare to the SL3?

It has a much wider and more usable brake track. That's the immediate thing one notices. And of course the rear rim has a substantially offset center of drilling pattern, which will result in much more even tension left to right and a stronger, stiffer wheel, at least on paper. How much this really matters in the real world can be debated but I'd ask, 'why not?' After all, it doesn't cost substantially more than a symmetrical rim I've been a fan for a long time since I first became aware of asymmetrical rims probably 15 years ago or so.

The hubs are among the widest available and probably help the cause as well. At this point I have a couple hundred miles on the wheels and they've been good. No issues, but I wouldn't expect any either as they haven't been super hard miles and they aren't really built for maximum performance.

The build is 28/24 with butted, round spokes and alloy nipples. I don't know the weight though they're competitive.

I could have probably gone 28/20 with bladed spokes and radial front lacing to improve performance a bit but I just wanted some good, durable riding wheels for this set.

These are more or less a direct replacement for my old ENVE 3.4 clinchers. I sold the ENVEs and ordered these with the proceeds. The difference is that I ride them on different bikes so it's hard to make a direct comparison.

But I don't miss the ENVEs and I like these and another set of comparable aluminum (Boyd) wheels I got about the same time.

Note: The front hub was slightly loose with some play. The solution seemed to be to increasingly use more tension on the skewer to compress it all and get proper tension. I'm not a fan of this method and it would be borderline unsafe to keep tightening exterior cam skewers. I'm using Shimano Dura Ace skewers here but ultimately they should have better bearing preload adjustability than just tightening skewers.

And how about mounting tires? The SL23's could be a bear with certain tires when they (tires) were new.

I have had no serious issues. I follow the practice of making sure everything is in the center channel and finishing around the valve. Then go around again to confirm no pinching of the inner tube.

Then inflate to just enough to fill the tire and again confirm nothing is pinched and the inner tube is fully inside the tire. Then inflate.

They're not 'slip on' easy to install, but not that hard either. My fingers aren't especially strong and I do it with no tools.

Just make sure it's all in the center channel before getting the last few inches over the rim at the valve. That's my technique, as described by Mr. Ergott on my first set of tubeless ready rims.

SL23 V1 rims work just fine for me too, as above. I can even put Challenge(ing) tires on them.
I suppose the new Pacenti rims are even easier to work with.

I am looking forward to the corrected website so I can read up on the Brevet 650b offering.
