I've been looking at wheels again and I was focusing on weight, but I met a rider yesterday and he said the low spoke count will give me a harsher ride. I did know that, but I was wondering if I could get a wheel set lighter than 1800 grams and have a strong wheel with a more compliant ride. I like the ride I get from my Open Pros, but they are kind of heavy. The bike came with Fulcrum 7 wheels and they don't feel to bad, but they are heavy as well. I was looking at the Soul wheels and they didn't look to bad, but I thought they may be to stiff as well. I really don't want to go over $500 and I'm down to 188# now. Sometimes I wonder if I should get a wheel set for a 200 pounder, because I may gain the weight back again. I hope not, but you never know.
