    5.7C wheels
    What do you think of the wheels that came on your 5.7 Carbons? If you changed them or did your own build what did you put on?

    I built my own, and went with Crests on DT240s. Came in at about 1500g (1514g to be exact).

    Love them! I've put them through the ringer in the last 9 months, and they've held up fantastically! Light, strong, fast, everything I could want.

    The only thing I would potentially change is to use some Flow EXs if I was going to run wider tyres than I am at the moment (currenlty got 2.35 RaRa & NoNi).

    I changed to some Shimano Crossmax.

    edit--didn't really change. Ordered from the LBS with what I wanted.

    Last year I bought a take off wheelset from a 5.7. DT 350 hubs 32holes, supercomp spokes and 430 rims. Then I built the hubs with CX-Rays with Lightbicycle AM rims. 1420gr of strong light stiff.
    If I were to keep the hubs and spokes I'd put Arch EX rims on it for a very good and more affordable set at 1575gr. I will not use a rim narrower than 21mm for XC and 23mm for
    Trail so DT rims are not for me.

    I bought the frame only.

    Did a full custom build and went with Enve AM's. Love the wheels. Light, stiff, and bomber.
