Hi there folks,
For the last couple of years I've happily been bashing a set of Planet X Model B wheels and now fancy a fresh set within £350. Planet X claim that the model b's weigh approx 1600gms. I've looked at carbon rims (Planet X 50mm) at £450-£500 and noticed that they are heavier.I've also looked at deep section alloy rims (Kinetic K1 and K2), which too seem to be heavier.
1. Is the advantage of carbon rims worth the extra weight?
2. Are deep section rims worth the extra weight?
3. Any other reccommendations for clinchers?
