    +1

    Granted, I've not got a great deal to compare them to but I've ran them for several hundred miles and they're a good deal better than the stock wheels I had. Look nice too :wink:

    Exactly what he said. And if your bike has a hint of red they seem to go faster.

    They may be demoted to my winter wheels soon though. The only thing that's stopped me so far is how well the Quattro's have ran.

    Everything everyone else has already said, had mine 3 weeks and love them, just have to remember they ain't stock wheels so tend to be very vigilant for pot holes.
    They help me spin up to the higher speeds on club runs and maintain the pace this maybe due to the better aero profile than my stock set. Oh and they look handy on my black frame.

    What are you considering replacing Quattro's with? Been researching upgrades for a while now but not decided what to go for.

    i have a isaac meson with f/fwd 6 r,s which are 60 mm deep and are horrendous in wind, so they are jst to replace them when its windy, and dont want to spend a great amount, and hopefully they will not look to bad on the oversized frame.

    I was ready to go with a set of handbuilts from a very helpful chap of this forum; I may still; but at the minute I'm thinking of Campagnolo Shamal Dark Black labels. I can pick these up for £600 after some discount from halfords.

    It's all a bit if a minefield really and an expensive one if you get it wrong.

    What have you been thinking?

    Can you not fit a pair of dark black labels on your wheels and keep using them? What's dark black? Is black not dark enough?

  • It's as simple as dark grey stickers rather than white form what I can make out so far.

    Initially thinking of Fulcrum racing Zero's Dark labels with Red spokes then a deeper section like Mavic Cosmic Carbones Dark label like they have on the Cento Uno on Wilier UK website. Of everything I've seen I think the carbones match the bike best aesthetically however now considering a set of deep section Enves from Wheelsmith or Strada. :?

    My gf has these and I agree with this. They are a good all round sportive wheel and look good too.

    I have decided this wheel malarky is all in the head. I rode my 1st 100 miler on Sunday and due to the atrocious weather forecast (and indeed some of the actual weather on the day) I used my wet bike.

    Now, due to various factors which I shall not bore you with the bike has some Maddux RS 3.0 wheels on it (the standard ones Cannnondale fit to their CAAD range etc.) that I purchased 2nd hand for £30 the pair to use on the turbo.

    Now the rear is slightly out of true and they are generally considered not very good wheels in the first place. So imagine my surprise when they rolled really nicely, I climbed and descended as good as I ever have and they had no descernable flex (or brake rub).

    So thats it - bargain basement crappy wheels are where it is at.

    you robbed a bank?!

    if so, which one, im going to give it a try.

    i've never had really good wheels on any bike and whilst the quattros are good i feel i have to see if there is a transformation with something better.

    i know i don't want/need tubs
    i don't want anything bigger than 40mm deep
    carbon or Ali; i really don't care
    im a tart so looking nice is pretty high up on the list
    handbuilts or factory; who knows

    i could end up with nothing to be honest
