At that price, the Neuvations are a pretty amazing deal. I've been riding on an older set of R28 Aeros for a few years and am quite happy with them. I'm a bit lighter at 165 lbs, but they have stayed...

For road riding, it's just...

I stand corrected - my apologies. Out of curiosity, what vintage is it? Their current stuff (and the last few years) seem to all be sloping top tubes.
