    Thanks! I've been on Cane Creek wheels for quite a while now and like them a lot. They are super stiff. Really easy to maintain and are quite reliable. The shorter bearing life leaves a little to be desired, but that's not a big deal to me--I enjoy pressing in new bearings. I'm gonna try and see how the Cane Creek rear wheel does on there, with a quick release. I'm thinking since it has good tensioners, it should be fine...but we'll see.
