Love the wheels except that they don’t come with the centerlock lock rings. Went to 3 local bike shops to find thinner lock rings since the ones that came from my DT Swiss were a millimeter or 2 too thick and make contact with the hub internal when tightened which prevents the hub from spinning. The Shimano, and generic ones that LBS carry have the same thickness as mine. I called Hayes and the CSA said it’s the first time he heard of it. I ended up filing the lock rings so it doesn’t make contact with the hub
Thanks for the review, and for reaching out to our Customer Care Team,
I picked up a set of the Aero 65 DB wheels for a Venge build and I'm blown away. Every element of the wheels has exceeded expectations, the performance, the hub and build quality, the free speed and longevity of the spokes tension and wheel's trueness despite a few gravel excursions has me a believer. Well done to the Reynolds and HBG team.
These are my second set of Reynolds wheels in addition to a pair of Blacklabel 46's. These wheels are fast, lightweight, and aero...period. The I9 hubs are some of the smoothest I've ever seen and used.
I was pleasantly surprised with the cross-wind performance of the 65's. The dispersion technology at work does work and I find myself stable even at high speeds.
