I've always loved the simple RD400 wheels. Too bad they aren't tubeless. Glad to see progress on thus!

Was thinking of giving you a ring the other day and seeing where you were at with this thing.

Hardware installed in wheels...




Forks assembled...

And I got one tire about 95% installed when I ran into the issue of... I'm not putting a prybar and/or spoon on these freshly polished wheels.
So, they'll be going to the local cycle shop for installation. The money spent will more than offset the liability of scratching the wheel ;)
