The rims are great. They are the WR38 model with 32mm external and 25mm internal so they work perfectly for the 32-35C slicks I'm running. More aero for the wider tires I suppose. John Jones built the wheels for me with some Carbon-Ti hubs. He puts stickers on his builds and I'm happy wear his brand because he's a solid dude!

Overall very nice and balanced build !
Thanks for the geometry ! Would be nice too to have tubing diameter and thickness but maybe it's part of the magic , so we can't know

I will too buy one or two sets of rims or wheels or have them build
super wide from light bicycle after good experiences in the past with them
Don't know if I choose between the regulars 35 and 45 mm
In satin or glossy finish , matt is awfull with dirt, dust

Or the newer ones falcon pro, more expansive and scratch resistance is better according to them.
They come out of the mold like that perfect while the others needs painting sanding and clearcoat.
Otherwhise they are identical I think , they proportiannaly weight the same. I doubt they are carbon fibers grade difference

Did you get the regular or superlight ones for 12USD/rim more ?

I would get
35/45
or 45/45
in regular

or 38/38
or 38/50 in falcon finish

I have already a fast pair for 28mm tires
Lightbicycle WR 56mm

Intend to run them with 32mm to 40 42mm max
SO aero won't matter with such big tires
More a question of look and behaviour I guess

And trying to imitate what enve did with the AR 3.4 I guess
Except if prefer the light bicycle on all point ( except weight maybe )

I really dig the aesthetics of the oversized tubing. Looks sharp. I'm getting a bike built up with a similar design.
