Speeddreams are lighter and use a rim with basically the same profile as Kysriums...they will perform the same on flats.
PURCHASE NEITHER.........trust meAdamz

Neither...

get a pair of American Classics. They're cheap and strong.

Lighter & cheaper than the Ksyiriumums.

Just as light and cheaper than the Speeddreams. They are built on the same American Classic front and rear hubs. The Speeddream rims are heavier than the Velocity Aeroheads that Am Classic uses. A teammate of mine bought a pair of Speeddreams and his rims were getting water logged in the rain. He regrets purchasing them.
