Anyone riding the LTA wheel set? I'm @ 170 Lbs and ride smooth to fairly bumpy roads. Alum Carb Level Fondriest. Enough spokes on those things for everyday wheels?

Thanks

I've found the non-adjustable nature of the hubs makes them practically useless as everyday wheels. And the hubs are not light enough to be considered as special event components. I had a set, and after hearing for the third time from a mechanic about how every set they sold (mainly on Lew wheels) came back multiple times, I sold the wheels and never looked back.
Ride lightly!

Ye olde,

Thanks! I started looking at the LTA because of posts about Speeddreams, so news on the hub rules those out as well.
