#!markdown I have ridden the AM versions in both 26″ and 27.5″. I'll never forget the feeling I experienced in the first few minutes of riding them. They are extremely stiff (laterally) and somehow felt faster and more lively. Industry Nine wheels (aluminum straight pull spokes) feel vertically stiff and unpleasant. I've also ridden the new Light Bicycle rims with 31.6mm internal width, and that's all I buy now. I can't justify the cost of the Enve's, particularly because the internal spoke nipples don't allow for adjustment without removing tires, sealant and rim tape. Although you rarely, if ever, need to touch them. I think the Enve's are stiffer too. Lastly, Park makes an internal nipple wrench to fit Enve's (SW15 or SW16).
