    Another, "Are these wheels...."

    ...good for a clyde.

    I'm sitting at 210 lbs. and losing. A set of new Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels are for the had for $300 CAN. The price is right I think first off, and from the searching that I've done, the Ksyrium wheelset is the one to go for (Equipe though from what I 've seen).

    As well, the set that they will be replacing is a set of Bontranger Selects.

    All thoughts welcome......

    they should be fine.
    I'm 270 and used a 1500 gm wheelset on vacation. They felt incredible and were super stiff. The bearings felt like i could roll forever.

    Can't give you any direct feed back as I haven't used them. However, at 265lbs, Ksrium equipe's made my short list for some lower spoke count wheels. Until, I tried my wifes Rolf's and decided that I would stick with my OP, Ultegra's.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    They should work fine, for your weight.

    Thanks a lot for the replies. The Bontrangers just don't give me that 'super safe' stray far from home feeling. New wheels will open up a huge amount of country riding for sure.
