    Do those wheels use a different type of brake pads for the carbon rims?

    when you tap the rim it makes that hollow sound lol,although when you start to go over 25mph it starts to make that really cool harmonic howling sound in the wind as it passes over the rims ;)

    yeah i encountered that earlier,I think its safe to say i wont be reaching for the water bottle anytime soon in a strong crosswind or ill end up flying away lol.How do the Conti Sprinters hold up resistance wise? I mean on basic riding are they strong enough to handle the knocks and bumps of Londons roads? or purely a event tyre?
