Are these tubeless only or tubeless ready?... Can you just use regular clinchers?

- I've put it through the wringer
If you are a social club rider this wheelset is likely for you. If you are a compettive rider / racer then I would NOT recommend this wheelset for the following reasons. Disc Brake Rubbing Failure. The problem is during a climb or sprint out of the saddle, the disc breaks touch ’s / rubs brake pads (front/rear) producing an unpleasant rubbing metal sounding noise and reduces power / speed. This eventually self corrects after the wheelset stops flexing. This even happens during tight angle cornering and getting back on the power. I bought them for compettive cycling and did consider that this wheelset would flex under power transfer and tight cornering. It’s a shame to have this failure on this kind of product because definitely looks great but not for all types of ridding particularly competition or compettive style riding.

How wide to those GP5000s measure on these wheels?

most likely its the fork thats flexing when out of the saddle sprint causing disc rotor rub on the pads. The wheel hub is a solid piece that has zero flex that attaches to the fork. i have the same wheelset. on my BMC Roadmachine 01 one, i get brake rub when sprinting, when i put it on my Santa Cruz Stigmata, its quiet no matter what I do. I did notice that on my BMC, the gap on one side of the rotor and brake pad is less than a mm. I would try readjusting the caliper and checking the skewer for proper torque to minimize the noise.

- I've used it several times
I had been shopping carbon wheels for quite some time, and really wanted something deeper than 40mm but still manageable in a crosswind. I came across these wheels and they were exactly what I was looking for. I really liked the fact that they were deeper in the rear wheel (62mm) but slightly shallower and thinner in the front wheel (58mm) but not so much so as to be noticeably asymmetrical. Reynolds clearly did a lot of research to find the optimal size for front and rear wheels without sacrificing crosswind stability. I liked the fact that they were tubeless ready and had a wider profile so I would be able to use a 28mm tire to soften the ride a little on a very stiff bike. I was a little concerned that by going for value I would be sacrificing quality in the hubs, so far the hubs seem excellent. After installing them I let them spin a little, left the room for a minute or so, came back, and they were still spinning. I did not have any difficulty getting the tires over the rims (a complaint I hear often about some carbon wheels). Took them for a ride recently and love how the deep carbon resonates. Had the chance to test them in the wind, and at 35-40mph speed downhill in a direct crosswind, I barely noticed any instability in the front wheel, and I am a light rider who has felt pushed around by the wind before. I love the fact that they are setup for disc brakes because I did not like the squeal I heard from carbon pads against carbon rims, and need the stopping power for canyon descents and wet conditions. I would definitely recommend these wheels.

I own these wheels and they are awesome., Have never had any flex at the brake/hub. I did have the same problem with a set of Mavics on my old BH G7. The issue was not the wheels - it was the fork. The fork flexed - not the wheels.
