    Aerospoke wheels?

    Anyone heard of Aerospoke wheels? Contemplating a second set of wheels for touring - wondering how they might work on my new Bacchetta.

    Thanks!

    Yes I have. One of my riding buddies has them on his bikes. It is the only wheel that will stay together under his weight and strength. I don't mean to imply that he is fat, just BIG and pretty stout on the pedals. He runs alot and is in shape to push the pedals hard. But the Aerospoke wheels are holding up very well.

    Check the archives, there has been a lot of discussion on them. A little heaver on hills, but bomb proof. I have toured with them on my V2 and have hit 44 MPH (down hill, of course). Thats with 350 Lbs of bike, baggage and overweight rider. Have hit 52 MPH unloaded, without ever having to think about the wheels staying together. They are awesome.
