Message I tried several wheels as I was developing it, and they all fit pretty similarly. The main concern for me on RPF1s (and for a lot of people) was their very flat spoke which can interfere with a lot of calipers if the rotor hat isn't very tall.

All wheels will have a smaller diameter in the barrel which is necessary to get the bead over the lip of the wheel. The RPF1 just has that smaller diameter for a wider section of the barrel, which makes it stronger allowing the wheel to be lighter. I'm interested to see if it's even smaller diameter than normal wheels.
