Im new to the site and i just picked up my first road bike. I went an got a new 2014 Trek 1.2 the bike fits me great and im able to ride right along people that have been in the sport for sometime now. Coming from a distance running background I think its helped. I have had the bike since Tuesday and have put on 126 miles since. I absolutely love this sport. Its really really big here where I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This may be the wrong section for this but im not familiar on how this board works. so pardon me if i post in the wrong area.
Anyways, I have been looking into new wheels as I fell the rotating mass of the bontrager "approved" wheels are a little heavy.I am doing a 58 miler in Eureka springs in august and im wanting to have as much advantage in the climbs as possible. Everyone has said wheels wheels wheels with a low resistance tire will be all i need for qiuite a while. Its a 9 spd cassette and I'm having issues figuring out what i can actually use.
any info would be much much appreciated! thanks in advance!
