That is incredible. Perfect build on top of a very subtle and well-executed design by Focus. It's a shame they aren't in the Pro-Tour anymore..

PF30, I'm using the delrin wheel mfg pf30 adapters right now and I haven't had any reason to get anything "better." They're not the best solution, but they haven't creaked in 1650 miles so I'm not gonna touch it until it does.

I like it better this way! Those classic handbuilts/SS spokes go so well with the Dura Ace.
