I'm fortunate enough to have a pair of carbonsport lightweight wheels. I'm also fortunate enough to have entry to this year's Fred Whitton.

Although staggeringly light, the lightweights can be pretty uncompimising on poor roads and as with all carbon wheels, the braking is less than ideal.

I'd be grateful for any advice from anyone who's ridden the Whitten as to whether the lightweights would be unsuitable for the Whitton's terrain.
