    DT 240 CUSTOM WHEELS on mach 5.7

    DT 240 CUSTOM WHEELS

    These wheels are an option on some models of the Mach 5.7. Does anybody know the specifications of these wheels?
    I assume DT Swiss 240S hubs, but what about...

    rims? internal width? tubeless?
    type of spokes and number?
    weight?

    Make sure they are not bladed spokes. Those things suck. I had them on the Fbird.

    What makes you say the bladed spokes suck? Just curious.

    They bend and break too easily.

    I think I read a preliminary write up that seems to suggest this wheel set up is light, but flexy.
    It was on the internet somewhere so who knows...

    I'm currently on a set of crossmax ST's and running tubeless. I doubt I'll go for this DT swiss setup.

    I wish that more companies would spec Easton Havens. They have a nice width, reviews are good and they aren't too expensive.
