I am eventually planning to upgrade from bombproof training wheels to racing wheels for racing. I am looking for a set of aluminium clincher wheels (any cross-section) which weigh under 1600gs and cost under $800. So far the best bet seems to be FSA rd-600s. Opinions are greatly appreciated.
Very tough choice, but I cast my very biased vote for Ksyriums. I have 50k miles, combined, on the top Ksyriums, always buying the latest version when it comes out. Never a problem or even having to true one, but I weigh under 140lbs. Ditto,for Michelin's Pro series tires. I currently ride both Ksyrium TDFs and ESs, with Michelin's 220g Pro2 Race tires, the last 1/2 dozen weighed 215g, and Continental's 50g Supersonic Race 28 butyl tubes. I pay too much money for light weight rims, to use a 75g, 50% heavier tube. I don't race, but if I did, I would use Michelin's 190g Pro2 Race Lite tire. Glad to answere any questions, but please don't tell me about any Ksyrium problems, I have already read and seen plenty. Don't know why this is, but I suspect it's partially because there are so many out there and more people post when they have a problem, than when they don't.
