All built up, wow... interesting putting some 23mm tyres on the A23's, almost flat sidewall. Definitely a different tyre profile, will be interesting to see the handling characteristics (if any diff).
Will take some photos soon, they have Mrs P seal of approval.
Both wheels built up with a tolerance that the only perceptible bump is the seam where the rim ends are joined.
Parawolf, how are thew a23's going? I'm interested in building a set myself.
Pretty happy actually. Don't think I can feel much difference between them and the Open Pro's mind you. But one catch with the A23's, they are rubbish in terms of braking performance vs the Open Pro's. Vidman has them also and has the same experience. This is with standard Dura-Ace pads in my experience.
Thanks parawolf what are the issues - is it just stopping power compared with open pro's and/or juddering/ wet weather performance etc? Curious as I will be getting another set of wheels built shortly and seriously considering A23's.
