Wheel advice please.

Postby grindog » Sun Oct 14, 2012 09:24 am

Hi all, my bike currently has mavic cxp22 wheels that seem ok but are on the heavy side. I have a budget of around £300 but am getting confused as most of what I can find doesn't seem much better than what I have.

Any recommendations in this price range? Would it be worth me buying 1 good wheel for this value or does this mess the handling up of your bike?

Thanks, john

That's the kind of budget that gets you a cheap factory wheel upgrade in the absence of massive offers or a very decent set of hand builds.

Something like Velocity A 23 rims on Novatec light hubs and DT comp/DT revolution spokes weighs a feather over 1500 grams and I normally do them for that kind of money.
Drop me a line if interested, otherwise wait for the next offer on a set of Ksyrium Elite
