|r improvements. Plus the hubs and skewers are better on the Neutrons. I haven't seen the Neutrons, but am VERY happy with my Protons. Are the Neutrons worth the extra $$$? That's an individual call.

|also, the neutrons have aero spokes (slightly, more like oval) and they have internal nipples. The Neutrons have a ti cassette carrier, where the protons use?
I've got a pair of Protons and think they are, hands down, the best value for a wheelset out there.

|Jury is still out on "best value" for me as I have Mavic Cosmos(same 300.00 price) that have been troublefree for 3000 miles and recently got a set of Protons. Changing tires on the Protons is a two tire lever affair! At least Axial Pros and Conti supersonics are extremely tight...have to use a lever to get the tires on! Anyone know a tire that mounts more reasonably on the Protons??|

a bitch getting my GP3000's on.

|When I have tried Michellin and Conti's, I have found them to be a difficult tyres to get off an on, regardless of rim/wheelset. I have found Vittoria's a little easier.|| |
