Has anyone ridden these? Are they likely to be less stiff than my velocity arrowheads? I have the velocity's laced radial up front with 17 -14s, but they are too whippy and have 10k on them. I was thinking of going with the 350 laced 3 cross with 14-15s. Any thoughts?

I'm looking into getting a set of AC CR350's soon from Mike Garcia. Check them out at http://oddsandendos.safeshopper.com/2/cat2.htm?667 The cost is much better and he even has a 2 year no labor charge crash replacement policy.

I'm a light rider and will use 24 radial 14/15/14's for durability (only 30 more grams) and a more solid ride than 14/17/14's. I only weigh 132 so I could get away with lighter spokes, but am wise enough to avoid them! If I weighed more, I'd just move up to their 28 spoke front wheel. I'll stay with brass nipples (only 16 more grams) as well. The total weight should be just above 600 grams actual weight for only $162!

The same general setup for the 28 spoke rear wheel will weigh only 786 grams for just $222.

I got a set of them that are 1323g for the pair. They are both 28 holes, laced radially with 14/17's on the front, and 14/17's 2x on the non-drive with 14/15 3x on the drive side. I weigh 170, and have no troubles with them.
