I was looking at this bike:
Pretty standard low-end road bike, all sora, carbon fork etc. I was a little worried about the 23c tyres, but figured I could probably squeeze on some 25-28's. Don't need fenders or rack for my climate/load. However, When I went to check it out yesterday it had lower spoke wheels than shown on the site (not sure exactly, either 20/24 or 24/28).
The consensus seems to be either low spoke wheels are bad, or they're okay as long as there decent quality (given everything else on the bike I wouldn't expect them to be).
So, are the low spoke, 23c wheels enough to put this bike out of the running?
I'm on an extremely tight budget, my options (that includes 2nd hand) are limited, and I can get a very good deal on this bike.
