Hi,

What are the differences between the 2 versions of the carbone. Which one is better? Why?

Thanks...

Starting in 2000 (I believe) the rear wheel was re-designed with 20 spokes instead of 16. Also the graphics got a little bigger. Mine are 1998 with 16 bladed spokes front and rear. I've had no problems. I weigh 165# and I've hit all kinds of chug holes and bumps with them. I true them once a year whether they need it or not.
