New Wheels

I got a pair of HED Bastogne wheels to go along with my Jet C2s. Since the two wheel sets use pretty much the same rim structure and hubs, I should be able to swap them out without having to readjust brakes and (in theory at least) derailleurs. Also, on the advice of Dr. Wilkes, I've had the Batognes converted to tubeless and put a pair of Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless road tires on them. That should eliminate the possibility of pinch-flats and  provide a smooth, cushy ride, especially given the Bastogne's 23mm rims, which allow for running the tires at lower air pressure.
