New wheels...(9 posts)

New wheels...clink
Jan 27, 2002 4:56 PM
So, after being hit by a car today, my rear wheel is toast,(Tiagara hub, mavic CXP 23 Rim, original wheel for Devinci Silverstone)
any suggestions on what to replace it with? The options that I'm thinking are, rebuilt with a CXP 33 rim, or just buy a new set of wheels, (Rolfs or some Mavic Cosmic Elites)
This would be for triathlons and long road training rides..
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Did you lay on the ground and say "I can't feel my feet"? You have to do that to get the high-end wheels. Look into the Velomax wheels, they are so smooth.
Agreed. Go to www.velomax.com. (nm)morrison

Check out Sdeals.com in Britain. I live in California, and got a pair of Mavic Open Pros w/Chorus for a lot less than you might think. (They stock Shimano hubs, too!)
