Flash Tuesday: Edge 2.68s

So the day ran a tad longer than expected but none the less I was able to snap some indoor (sorry for the flash) shots of these bomber Edge 2.68s before they went in a box headed express for Florida. Michael is a 90kg triathlete so I wanted to find the proper blend between stiffness, lightweight, aerodynamics and ride quality. The build consists of White Industries H2 Hubs, Campy Record 10s 11/21 cassette, DT Swiss Ti RWS Skewers, Sapim CX-Ray spokes, Edge 2.68 rims (more resilient than the 1.68s), Tufo Extreme Tape and Vittoria EVO CX Tubulars.

If you would like a set of Handbuilt Edge Wheels for yourself drop me a line at "" or pick up the phone and dial 603 943-4202.

More to come...

Have you removed Tufo Extreme tape from Edge wheels? Does it come off OK? I've heard stories of the tape peeling up some strands of carbon on Zipps. Also, as a PRO, are you comfortable cornering hard on taped tires?

i have never had a problem installing, removing and racing on tufo extreme tape. keep in mind it is very important to prep the rim properly and always use a new tire.
