My Giant Defy has about 600 miles now and has helped me drop from 226 to 215 pounds since I purchased it in the Spring. Two weeks ago, the nipple of a spoke came loose during a ride and I took the wheel back to my LBS who replaced the spoke and nipple for me. Nonetheless, the wheel has so much lateral flex, that it will sometimes hit the brake pad while I'm hammering up hills. Although I have been trying to wear out these wheels while I save up for something more high end from my LBS, I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on some less expensive, yet stronger wheels off an online retailer now for some peace of mind. After some research, I have found the Fulcrum line to be well-praised, and well-priced. Is it worth it to purchase some wheels to hammer on now while I am still working on my weight, or should I continue on these current wheels and accept the flex as a side-effect of my size?
These are the wheels I am considering: http://www.probikekit.com/us/compone...-wheelset.html
Thanks in advance
