New Wheels : Velocity Halo Dyad and Shimano Alfine

Shimano Alfine & Velocity Halo Dyad
A set of wheels are in for review and in the midst of getting installed on the famous Salsa Casseroll..  Utilizing a Shimano Alfine groupset I have been piecing together in the past 6 months, and the new Velocity Dyad Halo reflective rims.

Due to needing to rebuild the bike completely to use these wheels, group and new Dynamo lighting system I haven’t gotten a test ride yet.

Have any of you seen the Halo rims, or utilized the Alfine group.  What has your experience been on either?
