Hi all - 1st post.
Just got what I think was a great deal on a bike. 2002 Trek Hilo 2000 frame, 105 drivetrain, dura ace shifters, syntace aero bars, icon sterling series stem, icon onyx series seat post, wtb speed V sport saddle, 105 clipless pedals, nike stelvio shoes, gloves, etc. all for $850 total.
Only question I have - I got it with Matrix Aurora Wheels (650s) and IRC Triathlon tires. I was attempting to mimic the 2002 Trek Hilo 1000 set up, but from trek, that bike comes with Bontrager Select Wheels.
It is my 1st road bike - gonna use it for some tri's. I can't find any info or company website, etc. on the Matrix Aurora Wheels. I notice that Trek uses those (Matrix Aurora) wheels on its $1,000ish road bikes, but the Bontrager Select wheels on its $1,500ish bikes.
Is there much of a difference? Will a newbie like myself realize any difference? Anything I need to look out for?
Any info would be appreciated.
