Weinmann/Formula or Alex/Formula Wheelset?
I sold the wheelset that came with my Windsor Hour yesterday, right before I dropped the frame off for powdercoating. So now I need wheels. I am 6'4" 265lbs & wanted some triple black deep Vs, but Velocity's pricing is too high.
So I have narrowed it down to Weinmann DP-18 in all black with Formula hubs for $180 (ebay) shipped which would mean that I would have to buy tires, tubes, cog, lockring ($75 shipped from universal). So alltogether like $255
Or I can get an Alex R-450-B wheelset in black (with lockring) with the same Formula hubs for $99, add tires, tubes, cog all from Ben's Cycle for like $175 shipped.
Does anyone have experience with either or both of these wheelsets & would the Weinmann's warrant the extra cost over the Alex's?
