have really been getting into my road bike, and have given the Mtn. Bike a rest. I think I can see the benefits of upgrading to the new aero style rims...although some of you may convince me otherwise!
If I should go with new rims I have a few problems that I need feedback on

1)I am a big rider...250lbs. farely lean, very strong legs - especially when climbing
2) I have Campy components
3) Trying to get into medical school, I am on a limited budget!

So, first of all is it worth it to upgrade? Secondly can you guys/girls...give me some recommendations?

I currently have Mavic cxp21 rims, laced on Veloce hubs

thanx in advance!

Some advice from one big guy to another - stay away from low spoke count wheels. They look cool, but they just are not made for us larger folks.

You might look at cxp 33 rims laced to chorus hubs, that would be a nice wheelset.

Get Velocity Deep V rims. They held up for me (at 220 lbs.) for a full season of Cyclecross, so I am sure they will handle the road for you.

Check them out here...
