    Wow, really nice wheels. Even at your shop pricing I still don't think I could pony up the $$ for them though

    Well said! New wheels on my rig turned it from being very sluggish to being able to climb like a goat.

    Nice combo . I have Enve xc's on one bike ,and a couple paul hubs for the front of my
    Jones. The hubs and the rims are amazing quality! The best I would say.
    Enjoy!

    STS, have you ridden carbon rimmed wheels before? Curious of your thoughts compared to what wheels you've ridden before? Read a couple times where riders thought the Enves were too stiff for their bike and so sold them. Guessing this is one of those last places I'm a hold out because of the $$ needed, but maybe they're like brakes, until you've tried really good ones you don't know what you're missing.

    they are stiff, but you get on the pedals and you just go... gonna hit some rough stuff today and see also get some multiple hours in on them and see, pretty wide so i think with tube ill be able to run 25-30 psi pretty easily with a touch of sealant in the tube, ket the carbon experiment begin

    How much do you weigh?

    Unless you're 200lbs+, I wouldn't recommend going with 32h rims. Too much for most guys. Very happy with my 28h rims, at 145lbs. I'd go 24h if they made them, honestly.
