Hey all, I ordered a set of these:


Now I have to get some quality tires to match. I'm leaning towards Continental Competitions. The next question is, 700x19? 700x21? What do you recommend?

Also, what do you recommend for a wheel bag. Something that will keep my new race wheels from being damaged...

Arent the competitions 22's or at least that s what I thought the ones I use are, 19's are too narrow for RR's in my opinion. Also with the narrower tub you stand more chance of damage to the rim and they are allegedly no quicker.

Try and get padded individual wheelbags. Whatever brand are the cheapest.
