Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love Tubular wheels, I have 11 sets of wheels all Tubular and most will think that I'm mental but I have been rolling them for so many years that I even like gluing them, one of the biggest positives is that I never get flats, 2 ounces of Stans in each and I don't even think about it.. now my point.. When a Tubular does blow your done, game over, your walking bike on your shoulder thumb out, I needed a set of wheels so I could rescue myself even if it would be super rare. So I started shopping hard for a set of Clinchers that came as close to my favorite set of do it all wheels Zipp 202s and to match 1180 gram set with a clincher would be about 200 grams impossible without finding these wheels, then I stumbled across these Industry 9 35s and bought them immediately. First thing they are not 25mm wide they are 23mm which is identical to the 202 Tubulars which is fine with me but the claimed 1250 gram set weight might be overstating it a bit, with Vittoria latex tubes and Conti 4000s2 tires the set weight for both is almost identical and I cannot tell the difference riding the bike. The best for last is the Hubs, I took the free hub off to make sure it was lubed with DuMont tech hub oil and these hubs are absolutely a thing of hand built beauty, its a 3 pawl hub like a Zipp hub but I think the pawls are even CNC machined with coil springs it is crazy cool.
I have about 500 miles on them (Maui Hawaii) and they are everything I could have wanted if the perfect set of Clinchers would have popped out of my head.. to say that I'm very very happy I bought these wheels is about as big of an understatement as saying the guys at CC are helpful and a real pleasure to do business with..
