Are you sure those wheels are *only* 1700 grams?

I'd say a new set of wheels could save you 300grams and still have Al rims (more than a frame upgrade) and you can pick good hubs, rims and spokes to your own taste for that price.

I wouldn't go BHS hubs -get some local manf'd hubs- but the BHS wide rim is pretty good and should be stiff enough to allow you to use less spokes.


+1 you can save 200grams at least

hello all,

do you consider that based on my riding profile, the FFWD F2R (20mm with 240 hubs) are good wheels for me?

100K-150K a week, I don't race.
In my rides (avg 60K - 80k) I do around 700m climbing in average.
77Kg

or shall I go for 38mm profiles?
