Life expectancy of wheels for clydes
I know there are several variables to this question, but I'm looking for some general guidelines. I'm about 330 and ride a Trek 7.2FX and an Orbea Onix, both with Mavic Aksium wheels. A friend mentioned that I'd likely only get about 1,500 miles from these wheels, and that surprised me. I've got a big ride coming up in June, right about the time I'll likely hit about 1,500 miles on both wheelsets.
1. Is my friends mileage life estimate about right?
2. Should I be concerned about wheelset replacement on the road bike prior to my big ride?
I appreciate the advice and enjoy the boards.
