I have been riding on my new Epic 5.6's with Sapim CX Ray spokes so far for about a month. So far they have been great! A couple things I will note about them: - Seem MUCH faster than my old aluminum rims - When riding, the wheels make a slight sound similar to an ambulance, Doesn't bother me at all, but just figured I would note that. It could be the valve stem extender - The wheels do flex a little bit side to side. I was worried that in a races they may flex some and come in contact with rim brakes, thus costing me speed, so I backed off my rim brakes a bit just to make sure. This is with the Sapim spokes also, just FYI. - The wheels had no problems working with Latex tubes. No carbon spikes or defects to effect the tubes. Like I said, overall I am still very happy with these wheels, and I will look forward to purchasing a set for the next bike I build also. Highly recommend.
