Perhaps one of the last sets of unridden Pink Punch Chris King hubs on planet Earth. These beautiful hubs have been built to very fine Mavic Open Pro carbons hoops. 32mm deep, 21mm internal width, 400g rims that are immaculately manufactured in Europe. These hoops spin up quick and ride smooth. Excellent rim for 26-30mm tires, but will accept up to a 40mm tire without issue. Built with high end Sapim CX-Ray spokes, black brass nipples, and Mavic stainless steel nipple washers. Wheels will come with receipt and full warranty from your date of purchase. CK hubs have a lifetime manufacturers warranty; Mavic Carbon hoops come with a 2 year manufacturers warranty. 12x100 front, 12x142 rear, 700c rims.

Forge+Bond Releases Two New Rim Designs
I've built one set of the EM30s 28h/32h combo and have been riding them for about a month now, with 10 days riding logged in E47/SDM/La Massif/VBN/etc (all around Quebec, basically). The rims themselves are of great construction quality IMHO. From a builders perspective, they are very clean and wrinkle free internally, and very round and flat (definitely not always the case). In turn, they build up very smoothly, very true, with very even tension. They have all the markers I look for, when the aim is to build a quality carbon wheelset. F+B also designed the nipple bed to work with Sapim MG washers, which accompany the rims - again, something I appreciate. Nipple bed and drilling are well executed to ensure spokes have a good straight path to hub flange (again, definitely not always the case). On first blush, all signs point to these hoops building into wheels that will live long fuss free lives. From the builders perspective again, I can't ask for much more. I definitely won't dispute the design and execution of these hoops is well done from what I have seen. They have definitely been a good ride for me over the past month. They have a fairly muted ride characte, as many have come to expect from todays high end carbon hoops, and for me that's a positive. I've come up short on a few features and cased these hoops hard on numerous occasions, and I've heard a few rim pings while pinballing though rock sections, and they just keep rolling true without signs of abuse. Short term feedback - they have been great.

Interview: World Cup DH Brake Tech with SRAM
@ohbmxer: I just crashed into a tree (crash is an overstatement) and fouled a Magura lever the other week. Basically forced the main MC oil seal into the internal Resi/bladder ports and cut holes in it. Leaver was dead. I contacted Magura and they sent replacement parts from the US to Canada the next day. Received in maybe 3-4 days max. They could have sent a new MC lever assembly, but they send an entire brake! Can't complain about their parts/service over here. Gold service.
