First some background about me:
27 years old former U23 bike racer
Had to quit because there were some more important life goals.
Last year started with triathlon and want to start racing my bike again.
What i got:
I ride a FM029 frame with shimano ultegra 10 speed.
These are my wheelset to chose from.
2008 ksyrium SL clincher wheels
50 mm carbon wheels on old zipp hubs (tubular)
2 pair of mavic gp4 rims(tubular): one laced to campa record hubs and one laced to shimano ultegra hubs
I am looking to replace the ksyrium wheels in the near future, they still have some life on them left buth i would like to make them my training wheels.
The tubular wheels i still got from my racing career and i will use for my races and triathlon.
What wheels should i buy to use for my nice wheater ride's here in belgium (not the nicest roads) and for my holiday in the south of france (col d'eze, col de turini, poggio,cipressa).
I am doubting about some nice light alu wheels (fulcrum) buth also charmed by the dura ace C35, these are above my budget so i am thinking about the far sports carbon alloy wheels (38CA) or should i risk buying a full carbon wheel from far sports (38C) knowing they will be used on belgium roads and brakeing on the decents in the south of france.
OR should i use my tubular alu wheels (strong and alloy brake track) and risk the puncture of tubulars?
Sorry for my english buth it's not my native language
