Iam getting my first road bike which is Cervelo RS 2011 and I have problem with my weight (105kg/230lb) and wheels. :rolleyes: Local seller told me D-A dont have weight limit but would they fit for heavy biker? Personally I like more D-A. Or should I just get Mavic which should be good?

My bike shop recommended Mavic A719's for my road bike. I've only had it a week (155 miles) but they seem great so far.

I have a set of DA wheels that I've had for just about 10 years and they've held up great. I'm in the 230+/- range and ride a little more than your average cyclist. They have changed the design a bit since then but I haven't heard they've gotten any less stout.
Good to know. Iam closer to buy DA set.
I'm sure DA's are awesome, I just have to say that I have Ksyr Elites on my Pinarrello and just love em! I'm sure both sets would never let you down, BTW I'm 225 and ride quite hard at 125 rear and 115 front.
