Don't bother spending that much money.abkol said:Looking to buy a great set of wheels. I don't race, but do a lot of long rides and like to climb. Any suggestions?
It depends on what your priorities are. If you are talking about the DA low spoke count wheels, then you could get something more durable and easier to service for a lot less money. You could also get something lighter for less money... but if you are expecting a noticable speed improvement, it won't happen.abkol said:Thanks. Right now I'm riding on Dura Ace wheels. I'm guessing you probably think they're more than fine, and anything else would probably be a waste of $?
Well if you want a noticeable improvement over that then:abkol said:Thanks. Right now I'm riding on Dura Ace wheels. I'm guessing you probably think they're more than fine, and anything else would probably be a waste of $?

If you answered yes - Campy Neutrons.
You need 10 speed in order to use Dura Ace. Ultegra will work with 8, 9, and 10. The performance difference is negligable. The hub is there to make the wheel go round (quality bearings on both) and hold the spokes together (similar flange geometry). The only place Dura Ace clearly wins is weight. You'll save an enormous 100g grams between the two sets.keeshadog said:is there a difference between the wheelsets?
thinking of buying another set of open pro/ultegras, but thought of possibly purchasing the open pros with dura ace hubs. is it worth the extra hundred bucks, in performance?
My regular wheels are Neuvation R28SLs. I really like them.I have about 2600 miles on them and they have stayed true. They spin up really fast and they weigh about 1480 grams. One of my buddies showed up with a set on his litespeed a few weeks ago.trek5200cs said:Has anyone used or ridding Neuvation R28's? They seem to be priced well and are reasonably weight. I don't know anything about them. Would love to hear from those in the know.
