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.
Ill be putting Reynolds Carbon AM Wheels on mine when I get it. mmm carbon on carbon tastyyyy :devil:
Shimano Crossmax eh?

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.
