What's a good 650c wheel for racing and training

Post by RLIrw » Mon, 30 Sep 2002 02:14:29


Getting a new bike and want to get a good set of wheels that will be good for
racing and training.  People I know that have Spinergy wheels have not been all
that happy with them and Zipp's are quite expensive.  Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Thanks

Heath at La Bicicletta in Toronto is building up a 650 wheelset for my
wife's 2PK using Ultegra hubs and Mavic rims. Heath says this is a better
wheelset than the standard spec on the P2K. He used to be sales manager for
Cervelo and seems to know his stuff. You can phone him for details at
1-416-762-2679.

For about 5 years I trained and raced on the same set of wheels. I used 650c
Mavic CPX? with Dura Ace hubs. Bladed spokes  where radially laced front (24)
and 3 cross drive side/radially laced non-drive (24 also). Those wheels weren't
the lightest but many are heavier and these were built up fairly inexpensively.

Velomax Curcit would be a great wheelset.
Velocity Deep V Is bomb proof but can get a little heavy.
Mavic cosmic elite will work well for both.
Personally, I like spinergies but for race wheels only!
Hed 3's can take alot of training and racing miles

Good Luck
Mike
