    Strengths:    Lateral stiffness and durability, these wheels stay true. Weight for wheels with cassette, tires, and skewers is less than 5 lbs, 2,250g, that’s very close in weight to my Zipp 404’s.

    Weaknesses:    Have not found ant.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have two sets of these tubular wheels one set has 300 gram training tires glued on and the other set has a set of 215 gram Tufo HICC that my son has been racing on, an I’ve been riding and racing on as well. The wheels are getting lots of miles and have been great in every ride. The wheels are very firm and stiff but ride soft and smooth on the tar & chip gravel Amish roads in Ohio.

    Strengths:    Lateral stiffness and durability. With some Veloflex Carbons the ride is oh so smooth and fast.

    Weaknesses:    None.

    Bottom Line:   
    This wheelset has quickly become my "go to" wheel for any condition where a carbon rim is not desireable. (Weather, course, want smoother ride.)

    help with Giant OCR 2 stem change (2003 model)

    I need to change out the stem on a 2003 Giant OCR 2. According to bikepedia this model came with a 1" Aheadset and adjustable stem. What is adjustable about this? The stem is nothing like the one on my wife's new 2008 model Trek. It attaches in a completely different manner. Can I even buy a sh ... Read More »

    Madone 5.2 for $1,990 demo model

    is this a good deal? I test rode it (it is a demo), a few chips in the paint, but it seems alright, definitely not new. Not that local a bike store, but the service was good. I don't like the Ultegra shifters too much (I have low end Campy now and would prefer to get Campy shifters on my next bik ... Read More »
