I'm looking to purchase a set of Carbon clinchers. Which would you guys recomend between the Dura ace 7850 C50 or Reynolds DV46 ? I'm swaying towards the Shimano wheels due to alloy braking surface, but i like the idea of the Reynolds warrranty.
Btw-Rider is close to 100KG, is that going to pose a problem on either set of wheels?
Beyond the issue of the weight of the rider ...
And, beyond one braking surface vs. the other ...
I believe the consideration for the cyclist should possibly be LOOSE bearings (Shimano) vs. CARTRIDGE bearings (presumably, Reynolds).
Unless a person is a sponsored rider with a handy race mechanic OR has access to multiple wheelsets, my preference-and-recommendation would always be to choose the hubs with loose bearings ... but, having said THAT, I need to say that in addition to having wheels with Shimano/Campagnolo/etc. hubs which have loose bearings that I also have several wheelsets with HUGI/DT hubs. That is, if you
/(generic) have wheel with cartridge bearings, then you will likely NOT have the wheels for at least a day if-and-when the bearings need to be serviced unless you can DIY & have the cartridge bearings in hand
(i.e., readily available).
