Ummmk, Im around 275lbs at 6'4" and at the end of last summer I started looking into cycling because I wanted to loose some weight. I went out and bought a Trek 1.2, wanted something along the lines of a 2.3 but for some reason all the bikes my LBS carry are 1.2's and the Madone 4 series. I diddnt have the need or money for that matter for a madone. The reason that I put up a thread was because I HAVE to get a new wheelset. Now back in the summer I am tired of having to take a special trip to town to get my wheels trued every week :mad2: . I have looked into Velocity's Deep V wheels and Im pretty certain thats the way I want to go. I have made some small mods to my bike like getting clipless pedals, a new saddle, and some aero bars but I regret not getting a better wheelset first. I just wanted to know whats the least amount of spokes I need to get? After that question is settled I want to know where im going to get them, My LBS has never even heard of velocity, I suppose if it doesnt have to do with the big names they have no clue about it. I want a wheel that I wont have to get trued. The tires on the current alex 32 spoke rims are fine, but im just tired of them getting out of true all the time. Sorry for the wall of text , just trying to explain the need of the new wheels. Thanks.
