    Shrinking Clyde with a few questions

    Hi all,
    It's been a while since I've been here, but I've got a few questions about weight, and bike wheels, like this question has never been posted before!! Anyway back on Feb 16th of this yr I underwent lapband surjury, I was 318lbs at that time, Im now 236lbs, and plan to go down to 190 lbs. When I recovered enough I started riding my Treck Navigator 2.0, well about a month ago I popped a rear spoke, and the wheel was out of true, they fixed the bike and so far everything is good, well 3 weeks ago I treated myself to a new road bike, and I really love it, I get a much better workout on it, and am now riding 96 miles a week on it. After the first week I noticed the rear wheel was out of true, and the shop took care of the problem, and since then everything has been OK, and while Im not 318lbs anymore, 236lbs is still alot of weight, even when I reach 190lbs, thats not what I would call lite, so Im just woundering if I should invest in a good wheelset?It seems as if Neuvation wheels are a great bang for the buck, Im sure they're better than the Xero Shawla wheels that are on my bike now I contacted Neuvation and they told me that the M28X Aero wheels would be best for me, and they rate them up to 250lbs, and the price is really good $199.00 plus $28.00 shipping, but Im not sure if I should get the wheels now, or wait until Im down to my target weight of 190lbs Im averaging about 16/18lbs weight loss every 6 weeks. Id like your opinion on this, and also what any of you think about Neuvation wheels.
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Neuvation wheels are awesome-ride them right now with no fear-I was riding the ones you mention @257-soon as I dropped below 250 I got the m28SL-both sets are great-at 236 and dropping buy the next lightest set-don't think he has SLs now-they will be plenty strong!
