    Good man! Same bike as me and the same size :D

    I was thinking of getting some of those wheels too but was unsure as i'm a bit hefty too. How are you finding them?
  • havent been out yet on them but there better built than what was on, im a pretty hefty bloke at 19st 7lbs and would think they'll do the job, time will tell tho :D

    Nice :-) Great colour scheme.

    Is that a CAAD8?

    Ive been looking at those wheels for my CAAD8, how do they compare weight wise to the stock wheels? [R3.0].

  • first ride today a 30 miler, hard to say what they were like as i was into a head wind almost the whole duration, but they seem better than the stock (so they should be) they also roll a lot better :D , as for the weight i havent got a clue and to be honest the weight isnt going to make any difference to me....being almost 20st :? :lol:
