Will they make that "train approaching" noise?

They are but I'll be running tubes.Tried tubeless on the MTBs and didn't see any real benefit.

I'm not sure but the hub makes a very nice sound....a bit like a safe being opened,more subtle than the loud clicking of the old Pro-2 MTB hubs :thumbsup:

TBH I'm happy with anything sub-20lb.It's a bit heavier than my Canyon but that was to be expected.

(Almost) finished my build!



Just got lights to fit, and bars to wrap, and I'm done. Just been out for a (very) quick ride. Very nice to ride. I love it.

Even built the wheels on this myself, first wheel build project. First 11 speed, first hydraulic, first disc brakes, first through axle. A lot of firsts for me on this bike.
