Hey guys. Summary: Four year old carbon (with rival for what it's worth) bike, tax returns coming and have money saved, want a wheel upgrade from the original Mavic Equipe (2009) (1770g) that came on it.
Group rides (semi-competitive with friends) 25-35 miles a ride, couple races and centuries a year for fun
Options I have in mind:
The lightest and cheapest (1362g and $640)
Kinlin XR-200 (20h radial and 24h rear 2x)
Sapim CX-Ray Black w/ Black Brass
White Industries T11 Black
The more durable set with added weight (1472g and a few dollars more)
Same as above but with Kinlin XR-270
American Classic Sprint 350 wheelsethttp://www.amclassic.com/2013/en/produc ... sprint-350
I can get these for $100 less than both of the wheels above
1410g for the pair.
All weights are as advertised by the manufacturer.
I'd like for you guys to weigh in on what you think would be a good everyday wheelset for a lightweight and low-demand rider.
