Opinions on wheel options(2 posts)

Opinions on wheel optionsPecos
Jun 23, 2002 9:34 AM
I am building up a new frame for weekend club racing and century rides. The frame is a Giant TCR that I have had for a while. I recently broke it down and used the components to build up a Klein for my fiance. I miss having a second ride so the Giant is getting a second life. That is until I decide which way I want to go - Ti or a combo frame of Ti carbon or Steel carbon like the Fondriest Status Carb- for a new frame. The gruppo is Record 10. I have narrowed my wheel choices down to Campy Eurus, Campy Neutron or Ksyrium SSC SL. I when to the review section, but there isn't a lot there. Anyone care to shed some light on these wheels?

I haven't tried the campy wheels, but I have the Ksyriums and love them. They're light, stiff,semi-aero, and it took them about a year of hard riding to start to go out of true. I know one guy that weighs more than me who uses them for cyclocross. If you're a lightweight this isn't an issue, but I think it's great to have a wheel I don't have to check over after every pothole. Hope that helps.
