I picked up my wheels today, mounted the tires, set the brakes and positioning up, and am waiting on my sprockets and bar tape. When I put the chain on, do I measure it using the 17 or the 16 cog? Wow, the hubs are really slick.

Measure using the 17t. Just make sure there's more than an 1/8" dropout space left behind the axle.
