Cane Creek racing clinchers and UCI wheel regs(5 posts)

Cane Creek racing clinchers and UCI wheel regsjradford

I have a set of Cane creek racing clinchers and a I would like to race on them. The UCI wheel regs say that any wheel with a rim deeper than 2.5cm needs to pass that test. Well I looked up the approved wheels on the UCI web site and they are not there.

Here is my question. Are these wheels approved by the UCI and can I race on them?

You actually asked two questions: Are these wheels approved by UCI? and Can I race on them?

I don't know about the first. Almost certainly on the second. Very few races in the US follow the UCI bike regs - and then only for Cat1-Pro riders. If you're an amatuer in the US, you definitely don't need to worry about this.

the race has stated that they will enforcing the UCI wheel regs. I have an email into them and to cane creek. but if someone here knows if there are approved or not it would be a big help.

Well that's a pain. But I did check, and they are not approved:

Are we talking the Aeroheads or the Deep V Road? The Aeroheads are fine because they are only 21 mm rim depth, and therefore exempt. They meet the spoke count requirements too....

The Deep V road is another story, and it may be because Cane Creek never had them tested.
