AC have redesigned their Alu nipples so that the thread is under compression, which they say stops fatigue breaks.
The Shimano RS30 is part of Shimano’s Road Sport series “integrating the best technology of the race-proven DURA-ACE wheels but at economical price points. These wheels are great for training rides and / or use at the local races.”
With super smooth hubs and superb lateral stiffness, Halo’s Aerotrack wheels are undeniably fine, bombproof wheels for daily road and/or winter service but weighing 993g and 1030g (front and rear respectively) you wouldn't put them on a lithe track or TT mount.

Can anyone recommend a good wheel builder, preferably in the London area. I want someone who can do unusual spoking, not just your standard 3X.
Shimano's RS80 wheelset is bringing Carbon wheels to the masses – at least wheels that look like they're made of Carbon, anyway. Lurking underneath is an alloy rim, which is good news for braking and general longevity, and Shimano say the combination of the two materials makes for a light, stiff and comfortable wheel. They would though, wouldn't they... how does the RS80 roll in real life?
