|New Race Wheels Recommendation||kinger|
Jan 4, 2003 1:45 PM
|Ok, the first races start early February here in AZ and I need to procure a new set of race wheels. These wheels will be for racing only. I do and will train on another pair. I am 6'1" and my race weight is between 160 and 165. I want the usual, light and stiff. Wheels I'm considering:
Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL
Bontrager Race-X Lite
Velomax Ascent Comp
American Classic CR350
Zipp 303 (probably out of my budget)
I prefer clincher but will consider tubulars. I've heard mostly good things about the Ksyrium's and the Race x lites but haven't heard or read much about the Velomax wheels. I'm intrigued by the light weight of the CR350's but am concerned about stiffness. My budget is $600 max but preferably closer to $500. Basically, I'm looking for opinions on these wheelsets as well as recommendations to consider others and why.
Thanks in advance!
