    Oh yes, we will make sure they are oriented correctly. When I mounted my Chupas on my Arc 40's for my 29+ bike, my goodness did those rim stickers annoy me, the normal 'label to valve' alignment meant one of the Arc's was upside down for the photos I had to take the tyres off to get the wheels rebuilt, so I re-aligned when I put them back!

    Those are sweet. How do you like the Chups on those rims?
    I currently have Chupacabras on Velocity Duallys wich are 45mm. I just bought a Krampus frameset so I was going to get the Arcs in 40mm for that.

    Love the Chupas, very pressure critical though, I find... a couple of PSI too much and they go rock hard, too soft and understeer city... a case of finding the pressure sweet spot.

    One thing with the ARC's is that they are a bit tricky to get the tyres aired up, the centre is concave so the beads want to go towards the lowest point of the rim.... once aired up though they are great. Nice and light, mine are laced with D-Light spokes onto i9 hubs.
