    Experience with Bontrager X-Lite Aero?

    Oops, my fault. Use it sometimes cause my keybord has no Euro symbol :o . I wonder why so few (hope that's the right word, I wanted to say the opposite of "a lot of" :rolleyes: ) people use this wheel set. I thought that Bontrager is very popular in the US?!? I tried to get some field reports...

    Experience with Bontrager X-Lite Aero?

    No the wheel-set costs 750 stones (completely with rims and hubs and spokes ;) ). I'm from Germany and we're able to get this wheel set for 469 Euro (about 500 $ I think; don't know why, Bontrager seems to be not so popular in our country), so the price of 130 Euro per rim is realistic...

    Don't have the Carbon wheels! Only those with Alu rims, take a look at this: Bontrager Race X-Lite Aero and this: Bontrager Race X-Lite Aero 2

    Experience with Bontrager X-Lite Aero?

    Hi, could someone tell me details about aerodynamic, especially durability, weight, ... Someone told me that he destroyed the rims (the wall of the rim seems to be very thin), and had to buy new ones for 130 $ apiece... Thx for your help!

    Race wheels

    If money doesn't count I'd choose the Zipp 303. I've heard a lot of bad things about stiffness and durability of the American classic hubs!! Or other idea: what do you think about Corima aero or medium wheels ( take a look at: www.corima.com ). They're not as light as the Zipps but a cheap...

    American Classic 420

    got an additional question yet: where can I buy the AC 420's rims only without hubs and spokes? On their homepage they write that they do not sell the rims only; but I've often heard that people built custom wheel sets with AC rims. Thanks for your help.

    Litespeed Siena

    I'm looking for a good allround bike but I think for this price the frame could be a little bit more lightweighted! Then I found a nice Titanium frame on the Litespeed Homepage, which looks very well and I think Titanium has a lot of advantages: no oxidating as with alu, not such problems with...

    American Classic 420

    Hi, I'm looking for a cheap dealer for an AC 420 wheel set. Second question: are the hubs stiff enough? I've often heard that they caused problems! Do you know alternative hubs, which have the same weight but are stiffer? Thanks for your help! Core

    Litespeed Siena

    Hi. I've got a good offer for a Litespeed Siena frame. But I think it's a little bit heavy-weighted? Does anybody has experience with this frame? Thanks for your help! Greetings Core
