Picked up some new wheels for my road bike - Dura-Ace C24's. Thought I should take a couple of pics while they still look new.

Nice bike!! How you liking them wheels? How much do they weigh?

I love the wheels...major upgrade for a bike such as this.

I spent about $2500 on the bike and then turned around and dropped $1000 on these wheels, which seems a little crazy to me in hindsight but they can move to the next bike.

They're really nice...super aero and fast on descents...I don't feel like I'm giving up anything to guys with the deeper aero rims. I think they weigh something like 1400 grams which isn't crazy light but they feel lighter than that. Shimano talks about how the weight is more in the hub than at the out edges of the wheel thanks to the carbon fiber that lives out there. So, they spin up like a much lighter wheel.

The other thing that I really like about them is that even though they're super stiff they give a nice ride...no harshness or vibration.

I would say that they're just a great all around wheel.
