I am currently running a Shimano R500 wheelset and to be honest i have found them to be quite average the wheels are about 15 months old and in the past 6 months i have broken 3 spokes.
I am looking to upgrade although i'm not ready for carbon wheels. I'll probably be looking to spend between 500-700 give or take.
I basically want to know what is the best bang for my buck.
I was concerned a bit about my weight currently around 85kg but after further reading about the R500 it appears they break spokes regularly.
Would appreciate any advice.
Jarrod, I am currently at 85kgs and use dura ace C24's and they have not missed a beat as they have done nearly 4,700kms and they are"true" and haven't busted a spoke yet
here is a dura ace test video worth looking at.
My nephew does tricks like that on his BMX, he wanted to borrow my carbon roadie but I wouldn't let him
Hey Rob Yeah I ordered the same wheels but currently out of stock but the online shop offered them in a fortnight at the old price.....they are a very popular wheel appparently :)
nice one !
Torpedo7 have Shimano 500 wheels for just $99
