Yeah so I've been having a little bit of an issue with my stock back wheel on my tri bike with flexing when braking and coming out of true so I decided to look for a new set of training wheels. My stock wheels are alex 220 so you aren't talking top of the line here but after looking a little, I found a new mavic ksyrium elite rear wheel online for $230 shipped since I get a discount with my tri team.
Anyone have any experience with them. I know they aren't top of the line but correct me if I'm wrong, I think they are a good step up from alex 220 wheels. Also I'm not sure if this classifies me as a big cyclist, but I'm 6'1'' 180lbs. So I hope they can stand up to that weight.
Also, I'm thinking of only getting the rear for now since the alex front wheel on my bike has no problem. Is this a bad idea for handling. The mavic wheelset weighs 1550 grams and the alex weighs 1906 grams; so the front wheel will be about the same weight as the back. I of course can get the front mavic for about another $200 shipped.
So what do y'all think; is this a good deal for a good wheelset or is it crap?
