Campagnolo Proton Wheelset(3 posts)

I need some help to see if these are the right wheels for me. I have recently had spoke problems with a new set of factory Bianchi wheels (aero & 16 spoke). After the fourth spoke broke my LBS set the wheelset back to the factory and they replaced them with a new set of Protons. They look like better wheels, but I am worried because of my size. I am 6'1" and 215 pounds. Does anybody think I am going to have continued problems or should I try and swap them for a more basic wheelset like the Mavic Open Pro's? Thanks for the help!

I am 6'0", 150 lbs and I've had the protons on my Cannondale for about 2700 miles with absolutely no problems (knock on wood) so far.

I considered the Protons but after speaking with several shops, we concluded that I was too big. I'm 6' 190. I opted for the Campy Scirocco's which have been great so far.
