    Fulcrum racing 5 vs 5.5 (What's the diff?)

    Hey guys!

    What's the difference between the fulcrum racing 5's and the 5.5's?
    I've been searching the web, but haven't really been able to find anything other than that the 5.5's were made for Cervélo.

    Thanks!

    5.5 is going to be an incremental step down from Fulcrum 5's which btw are very good training wheels...I have two sets and love them.
    the .5 is a slight deviation from the factory 5's...either different hub, rim or spokes...likely spec'ed by Cervelo.
    Fulcrum makes wheels expressly for the OE bike makers which is a slight deviation from their factory wheels which btw are made by Campy.
    Will it matter much? No, probably not.

    Focus bikes also have their own mix of the Fulcrum. Pretty much all models come with a .5 variation of the regular Fulcrum. I guess Cervelo has them as well. Like Campag already said, probably just some minor difference. But I do like how they come to match the bikes. Gives a nice little touch.
