I have recently bought some 2014 Fulcrum 5 Wheels (the ones with the red spoke nipples). I have noticed that on the rear wheel the valve hole is off-centre where it emerges on the underside of the rim. Rather than being lined up with the spoke it is coming out of the side of the rim. This means that you can't use a 44mm valve, you need a longer one. It looks very strange to me. Does anyone own these wheels and can you confirm whether the valve is also off centre. See pic above. The front one is drilled correctly.
