Hi, I am 205 pounds and want to upgrade to a pair of light wheels with some aerodynamic benefits that will still be durable enough for someone my size. I am considering a pair of Zipp 404 tubular clydesdale wheels. I don't race, but I do a lot of long solo rides and some faster group rides with friends. Can anyone tell me if these wheels would be durable enough for me? I would not use them as my every day training ride wheels, but for longer rides. But they would still see more use than a pair of race day only wheels. Thanks!

I have great set of wheels, if you are interested. They are Hed Jets. They have 28 bladed spokes on the rear and 24 bladed on the front. Very sturdy and incredibly fast. They'll give you the additional speed you are looking for and the reliability that you need. The rear takes a 9 speed Shimano cassette. The wheels are in great condition. Look at for more info.

You can email me at
