|Rolf Vector vs. Mavic Cosmos||rhino505|
Jun 7, 2001 8:42 PM
|I am looking for a relatively inexpensive wheelset for my bike and am debating which of the above to go with. Anybody out there have any advice? I am not an exceptional sprinter, but am a fairly good (light weight- 120 lbs.) climber, and I would like a wheelset to compliment my strengths. I have also seen the shimano R535's, but haven't heard any feedback on them nor seen any reviews. What do you guys (and gals) think?

|I don't know how much $$ you want to spend, but both the Rolf Vectors(cheap-about $250 a pr), and Shimano's are heavy. I suspect the same for the Cosmics, as they are a really aero wheel. If you want climbing hoops, go with heliums or even Ksyriums, or The Velomax wheels. With your weight (or lack there-of!), you could get the Ascents that are real light and aero.|

|At 120 lbs it don't matter.

|I am riding the COSMOS; not to be confused with the COSMIC. I am 190lb and have found the Cosmos to be a very good all around training wheel. I do notice a little flex on hard sprints or hard climbs but that is due to my weight. I think they are great for the money, $300.00 LBS, Mavic hubs, fairly light weight, good all around wheel.
My first choice for you would be to find a deal on a set of Heliums. I have several club members that train & race them and they are heavier than you. They love them. Mavic has discontinued them so you can get a set discounted.
Let us know,
