I trained on AmClassic CR-420's last year, with no reliability or performance problems. I train no more that 30 miles\week outside, so this year I purchased the carbon 38mm wheels with the standard build. I weigh 170 lbs, and have never had a wheel break on me. How well do these carbon tubulars hold up and perform, i.e. should I sell the CR 420's?

No problem....

I test wheels for them, and they will hold up fine. I am 215lbs and have had no problems with them. At 170#, you won't even bend them....

BTW, if you want something a little cooler, check out their Magnesium wheels...lighter than carbon....

the Flash....

I'll take the 420's.
Let me know if you still want to sell them.

Hi Stihl,
As a matter of fact, I do want to sell them. 2003 model, rebadged with the new decals for aesthetic reasons, standard build, true, in good shape, never gave me any trouble in three years of training, no reasonable offer refused. Perhaps we should move this conversation out of the forum. [email protected]

I've had the 58mm carbon

They are very nicely made. I believe the hubs are the same as on the 420. My LBS says that it's old technology, and people say that they don't tolerate the rain well. I've been riding on the 350 for a while and am happy with them. Sure, this is southern California and I don't ride in the rain...
