    Welcome to the forum. Good luck with what you're looking for from the armchair pundits. I'm reasonably sure you'll be disappointed with the views of the vast majority on this subject. But, stick...

    :innocent: Surely my post doesn't require further clarification. :innocent:

    220lbs is still under the 235 threshold where real clyde compromises have to be taken into account. Bad'ish terran requires at least a nod toward durability, decent budget means we don't have to...

    The older Open Pros were apparently better than the current ones. I also had a pair from about 2001 that I was happy with for several years, but, when it came time to replace the rear everyone...

    Way to go Chef!

    You should add those photos to the "Before and After" thread.

    It's always good to see another inspirational post.

    O.K. I've had a look at the two wheels you mention:

    The Tokkens are a sub 1500 gram pair using 390gram rims. At least they're 32 spoke and Tokken even include "extra spokes and nipples", because...

    I feel as though I must type response with arms held rigidly outward and in monotone voice.

    Maybe a few groans.

    (How does one type in "monotone voice"?)

    Sire,

    I do believe your steed must require more than 10 miles of exercise per day to be kept fit and appropriately hot.

    However if it pleases Your Highness, no more crotch shots are required.

    In case you didn't notice, the OP lives in Wales. Waiting for dry conditions is not a reasonable option for him.

    Nor should any of us have to curtail our riding simply because it's raining out.

    "Passing out" sounds, and obviously "was" a whole more serious than simply loosing one's balance from blood pressure induced spinnies. I hope you heal well.
