Hi I have a Giant OCR 3 with Alex rims and Sora hubs. I'm thinking of upgrading to Open Pro rims with Ultegra hubs.
1st is 190 lbs too much for these rims

2nd will I notice any diffrence and is it worth the money at present time.

Thank you for your time

On the same subject! Are Hubs a factor? Does it pay to spend a little More ( ok some more) for the dura HUBS?

1) - No - I am 210 and never trued mine even for CX use.

2) - You will notive difference on road. Re hubs - change them (if you can afford to), else you will have a worn out hub before you ware our the rest - waste of money!
