im looking at a few sets...
zipp 101 - little too expensive
shimano rs80 - price range
rol wheels d'huez - price range
besides looking at price i also wonder liked the fact all were laterally stiff, not sure which is best in comparison. weight is ok for me. want a good all-around pair, for flats/hills... pot holes in nyc...
the hubs im not to sure which is best at least for the wheels im considering...shimano has the ultegra hubs? rol wheels have their own brand and zipp i dont know. im wondering if each hub makes a difference in the amount of bearings in each hub? rol wheels said they have 2 front and 4 rear. zipp replied to me 2 in front hub, 2 in rear hub, 2 in free hub...all sealed tight? which has the least rolling resistance (im assuming all are about the same...?)
my current set is the stock shimano rs10 came with my caad9. im wondering how many bears are in those hubs and if it will make any difference? either noise or rotational quality? there is an issue but only random times while pedaling slow there will be a skip in the pedal followed by a crack noise. i had this issue before with my crap set on another bike. i also hear another guy's bike do it...its not the BB when i rotated it with the chain off its completely silent. maybe its my rear hub?
thanks for taking the time to read..any suggestions or opinions are helpful.
