Nice bike - did you get an accurate weight for the Fulcrum wheels? Ta

I ride 60's as all around wheels and don't find them too tall. I think it really comes down to the rider, the normal wind conditions in the areas and how heavy the rider is. If you're 120 pounds, and the area is windy, 50's will probably be a handful.


I'm 130 pounds, and i like to climb, the area is not very windy, but sometimes it is, what solutions for the wheels?? My frame is 49, i think the clx32 is too short, and the clx50 too tall, 38 or 40 i think will give a great look, and will be versatile to all terrains.

hm, i think frame looks quite clumsy, but better than the predecessors.

Picture of a 49cm? with the new seat stays does it look odd?
Let's finish the ride with a 20% grade.

I'd go 32's and I think they look fine...

I personally think the 50mm esthetically suit the Tarmac very well. But for climbing the 32s could be the best option if you go for the CLX. Otherwise go for another brand

I have a 49cm in my demo fleet. I'll upload a pic shortly. It looks cute.
