So I’ve hammered out 113 kilometers on the new front wheel with the X-FD installed. So far the wheel has remained dead true and the brake has performed very well in all conditions — including a very slushy late February ride. Kudos to the mech at Bikes on Wheels in Kensington Market who built the wheel. Its strong. I need to take it in this week just so they can look at it for adjustments — but I suspect none will be needed.
