Are Campag Protons too light to train on? I am tossing up between these and Mavic K's elite.

A little concerned about the semi-aeroness (is that a word!) of the K's. Any comments appreciated.

Price not an issue, therefore other suggestions welcomed.

Think little circles

Protons are not too light to train on. They are a great training wheel and not too heavy to race on. I've had them since October and haven't needed to true them yet either. As to the K's.. the semi-aero profile is a benefit but I just don't know much about the wheel.

I have just put 2000 miles on the Protons that came with my bike a Cannondale R2000. Haven't needed to true them yet and I have hit some pretty good holes/bumps with them and I weigh 190 pounds.
Thanks for the comments (nm)Iwannapodiumgirl
