New Wheels

i am after a new pair of wheels that i can use for road racing and time trialling. as i cant afford two different sets of wheels!

im quite a powerful rider and weigh 13stone, so i need a really strong wheel, as my aksiums have had a spoke or tow ping on them!!!

ive got my eye on some mavic ksyrium ES wheels, as they seem to be well used and highly rated.

what else do people suggest?

thanks

Hi steve23, haven't seen you for ages. Good to see you back.

Have you thought about hand built wheels?

I suggest you choose a hub and rim and get a recommended builder to make your perfect wheel, much more satisfying buy

my buget is up to about 700 quid, could maybe push it a tad higher, but no too much!!!

ive heard mixed reports about the carbones, arent they quite heavy?
