Hi, I'm looking to get a new set of wheels for my Specialized Roubaix Road Bike. The current wheels on are mavic open pro rims and unknown hubs. They have no markings on whatsoever.
The wheelsets I have been looking at are the mavic aksium, shimano RS20, shimano RS30, fulcrum 7, campagnolo khamsin and also mavic open pro rims with shimano 105 hubset.
I'm 74kg and use my bike to commute and also training around the saddleworth area and doing the odd sportif. Approx 75-150 miles per week.
I am so unsure as to what is best and to suit.
Have some Fulcrum Racing 5s (which I like a lot) on my BMC, but have been hankering after an upgrade for a while (more from a desire perspective, rather than need).
There are some pretty good deals on at the moment. Struggling with deciding on approach:
1) Do I upgrade one step and get some Fulcrum Racing 3s (which I would then feel happy to use for daily training)?
2) Do I go for a big upgrade, pay twice as much and get some Fulcrum Racing Zeros (but then would I be daft to use them for daily training, rather than saving for racing/events)?
3) Do I get equivalent Mavic/other?
Fulcrum wheels are available for all types of road cycling, with the Racing 3s about mid-way along the range, aimed at training, sportive or entry-level racing duties. The '2-Way Fit' version is designed for tubeless tyres; they're called '2-Way Fit' because you can also run them with normal clinchers and inner tubes.
