Performance gains from new wheelset?
It looks like we're going to have an opportunity to replace the rear rim on our Burley Duet, but before we buy the new rim and have it rebuilt, the question has come up as to whether there might be any noticeable performance gains by going with a performance wheelset like the Rolfs or Bontrager Light Tandem wheels as a replacement for our stock 40 spoke wheels.
We're a light team at 285 lbs, so I wouldn't be worried about that aspect, but can't we can't decide if it would be a waste of money to put the "go fast" wheels on a steel framed bike that is anything but lightweight.
What would you recommend?
