New here so be kind!
Im looking to get some new wheels as my rear wheel (easton ea 50) is creaking pretty bad and its doing my head in!
sort of narrowed it down to rs80's, £315 or prolite bracciano's, £255.
Im not quick, Im 13 stone and i will be doing 112 mile on em at Outlaw.
any views or recomendations would be very much appreciated.

    I bought the Braccianos when they were 190 from Ribble and they're superb. Made a big difference climbing and when putting more power down, best money I've spent on the bike.

    If they were 260 I'd get the Planet-X model B's instead at 125. There's rumour going around that they're almost identical, maybe from the same factory.
