Looks great.. but beware of those metal valve caps. Use some special grease for it!

I have had alu valve caps in the past too and did not use grease... they got stuck on the valve.
Needed to replace all valves (so costs for remove tire, new valve, replace tire and balancing.. x4!).

good tip DutCHR ,Says they are made of stainless steel so shouldn't rust, but better safe than sorry

I too would NEVER-EVER use metal dust caps again after being caught out before - they cold weld to the valves and become impossible to remove. Expensive lesson learnt for me when I had to have all new valves fitted....
