    Unknown. I'm about your weight and I ride Chinese eBay carbon clinchers, not Williams. They're my everyday wheelset. They don't have a problem at all, have never gone out of true over 7,000 miles....

    This is the Juniors 17-18 race.

    He gets a little gun-shy in the finish of the race. Even though I know he has the power/speed to get a top-result, he backed off with 2 corners to go. He told me he...

    FWIW, my junior uses a 52x14 on a 23 tire (Michelin Pro3Race) and has no problem passing rollout.

    We went with a 14-25 cassette because it was cheaper than buying a new crank to go with an 11T...

    As long as it doesn't take away from their own riders, or cost them (time, money, energy), or give an advantage to the other team, soigneurs always help eachother out. And even team managers have...

    Power is a function of torque & cadence. Assuming your torque remained constant, if your cadence goes up, the resulting power will too.

    I'm north of you by about 20-lbs.

    I race on some 50mm carbon tubulars off eBay. 32/28 spokes with Novatec hubs. Handbuilt by my local wheelbuilder (best in the business I've ever met).

    I ride...

    Sorry if nit-picking, and please take with a grain of salt, but in my head, 0.3mm--or 1/100th of the whole tire--is a stretch for "much narrower" status. ;) Have you ridden them? Can you tell the...

    To start, you could think of "beefier wheel" as meaning one with a minimum of 32-spokes. For 240#, that should be fine (I'm 260+ and ride 32-spokes).

    Then, you need to add in rim brand & model....
