I am new to wheels with bladed spokes. I just bought a set of Rol SL28s that have bladed spokes to replace the Mavic Helium wheels I crashed. Now, going downhills, once I get up to ~35 mph, I feel a little bit of a "wobble" in the handlebars. Is this normal? I know the bladed spokes and deeper rims will catch the wind more than my old Heliums but is that the way bladed spoke wheels feel? I wasn't sure if it was the wheels or my hands shaking due to the fact that I just crashed on a downhill a few weeks ago. :mad2:

My guess is that the wheels are just catching more air than my Heliums and I will get used to it eventually. Right now, I am probably just hypersensitive.
