Got the ok for new wheels!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

someone posted a busted spoke story on the boyds not too long ago.
Which of your listed brands have never had a busted spoke story?

Looks like he takes a good look at you, how you plan to use your wheels, and what you expect of them. I like that idea, personally. Then he custom builds based on that info, which seems like a good idea. Not sure what his prices are like, but it would be worth looking into, IMHO. Like you wanted yet ANOTHER option, right, lol!

PSIMET's prices are pretty good. I have an order in with Rob right now. They should be done this week. Pacenti SL23 rims, White Industries T11 hubs, CX Ray spokes (24f/28r), and brass nipples came to just under $700 plus $35 shipping to Ohio.

The c-24s should be great wheels. Post a review once you've put some miles on them.

I've never ridden the old C24 but these new ones are awesome. Best wheels I have used so far. Extremely smooth and stiff.

I've got a pair of the D'Huez. I like them. They are nice and light.

Still looking at Boyd Vitesse, ROL Race-SL, and Soul s2.0. Also stumbled on a set of fulcrum racing zeros for $800. Oh yeah the November 38mm full carbon set at $890 is also tempting - but maybe a little much for an everyday wheel.
Fwiw I have the November 38 as my everyday wheel and love it, but it's not a wide rim if that's important to you. I ride mine with 25c tires and find the feel to be great but I've also never tried the wider rims. Their FSW's are though. I had thought that the new c24's were as well but could be wrong. The DA wheels do not have a weight limit and I was beyond 165 when I was on them

Yeah - I ended up with the 9000s. I am pretty sure they will be hidden by the time I get home from work and I will have to wait about a week until it's my birthday to actually ride them. We'll see what happens.
