I am about to purchase a new CF road bike, but I have some questions about wheels that is bothering me. The bike shop owner is telling me that the Mavic Ksyrium Elite SL is strong enough to work for me at my weight of 220Ibs.
She told me her husband weighs about 235Ibs, has had the same wheels for about a year, with about 5000miles on them, and has never had the wheels out of true.
Frankly, I am sceptical of this claim re:her husband's wheel.
Wheels are terribly important to me. I do not want to break spokes on rides, nor do I want to have to true my wheels every other ride. I want wheels that are sturdy enough for a clydesdale.
Well, would you recommend the Mavic Ksyrium Elite SL for a 220Ib clydesdale like me?
Thanks for all responses.
