Looks like the rims may be DT 4.2 with a new finish.madmike283 said:Anyone? I was thinking about pulling the trigger on these things to give them a shot. Thinking about upgrading the stockers on my Trance X2. Wonder how white rims would look on the matte black frame???
That'd be Chris probably. I bought a set off them in May (I couldn't buy the parts to build 'em myself for their prices). I eee'd them with my order and said I'd phone them in a while with my credit card number. I'm up in Canada by the way. A few minutes later the phone rang and it was Chris calling for my cc number! You could have knocked me over with a feather. That's a first! We had a nice chat.sean916 said:I just called these guys the other day.......They seemed on their game....I forget the guy's name but he was willing to answer my questions
Love 'em. But I gotta say this - I've built my own wheels for five decades (plus wheels for many friends) so I just had to have my way with the BWW wheels before they hit the dirt (they were for my new cyclocross bike).MoE79 said:Mike T - If you got a set in May, how do you like them?
For my CX bike I bought Open Pro rims/Shimano Ultegra hubs/DT 2.0/1.8/2.0 spokes/x3/alum nipples. Here they are and those with eagle eyes will see I tied & soldered the spokes. Why? Because I can! I'll bet I peed away my warranty Do I think T&S makes any difference? I'd be a fool to say it does as I have no way of measuring its effect.sean916 said:Hey Mike mind telling us which wheelset you bought. From the info I received it sounds like all their wheelsets are built in house, if anyone else is interested.
Opps that's right you did say cross bike. Sounds like a nice set. So after all this discussion I was on BWW's site again today ready to buy the 717's with the gold BWW hubs... but then... I saw the 717 with XTR hubs for a great price and temptation took hold.Mike T. said:For my CX bike I bought Open Pro rims/Shimano Ultegra hubs/DT 2.0/1.8/2.0 spokes/x3/alum nipples. ...
