It is fairly stealthy apart from the lettering etc!

Wheels are direct from China

carbonzone per chance ? I'd considered them but the whole reliability thing worries me...being full carbon clinchers as well.
How do they ride ?
Looks fab !

Carbon_bicycle (eBay)

They ride fantastically, very fast when riding at higher speeds.

They are made very well.

Thanks, it had a lot of attention at my last 120km meeting on Saturday. The marshals especially!

I am very happy with the setup so far.
