Bit of idle curiosity really, I keep looking at my summer road bike and wondering what the best upgrade for it would be.
I'm approx 85kg, and aspire more to long distance than sprinting up and down hills, so a set of aero wheels looks quite attractive.
The Shimano Dura Ace 60mm carbon clinchers with the aluminium brake track look ideal, I like Shimano hubs but also still having an aluminium braking surface.
The manufacturer's stated weight is 300g heavier than the wheels on my bike right now. I could easily believe the aero benefits would outweigh the minor weight disadvantage, but how would this make the bike feel? I'm guessing more sluggish until you get it up to speed?
I noticed the 40mm deep Dura Ace wheels are 350g lighter than the 60mm versions, this would be tempting but by the sounds of it they aren't much deeper than my Fulcrum Racing 3s.
Anyone made a similar switch?
