Bontrager Aeolus Wheels
So... I've come into a set of Bontrager Aeolus wheels:
(These aren't mine, but they're the same set as I have minus the extraneous stickers.)
Anyway, I don't know much about them other than they've got an excessively low spoke count and are very light weight. They used to belong to my brother, but he got out of cycling years ago; my initial plan was to sell them on his behalf, however, I'm wondering if they're something I'd be able to use. The cassette splines are kinda jacked up, so they need a wee bit of work, but they spin smooth and true.
I'm currently 230 lbs and dropping, and I run Mavic Kysrium Elite wheels with no problem. I'm also 6'3" so I'm not going to drop all that much more; I'd like to get to somewhere around 215 lbs.
Any feedback or experiences with these wheels would be appreciated.
