Last sentence means - I like the look of the low spoke count but the low spoke count is what concerns me with durability.

Thank you - You provided the answer I was looking for. I just placed my order with Starbike so I will soon find out for myself.

I'll update this after I receive the wheels.


Doubt you have anything to worry about regarding wheel strength, check out link.

RM27- what made you choose the viva s mcc instead of the winium + mcc when vs the lightweight gipf? Whas rim height the deciding factor?

Don't forget pics and a review of the wheelset

Thanks for that link. It's great to read that after 2 broken spokes he was still able to ride the wheel.

I chose the Viva S over the Winium + because of depth. I already have LW standards and wanted something slightly low profile or lower profile. I chose it over the Gipfelsturm mainly because of price to weight ratio and I am hoping for some aero benefit. The difference in weight vs the Gipfelsturm was next to nothing, the difference in price was extreme in comparison. I also like the look of the wheels and wanted to try something different.

I'll post pics and review after I receive the wheels. I believe/hope they will ship very soon.

Unfortunately still have not shipped from Starbike. They seem to be having trouble getting them from Corima. Going on 6 weeks now since order placed.

Starbike has been good with responding to my emails but I am about ready to forget them and move onto something else.

I might order a pair to replace the Enve 1.25 tubulars that I just sold to a friend.
