I want to refresh my old touring with new wheel set and alfine hubs.
For exactly the same amount I can order Shimano WH-S501 wheel set or wheels made of A319, alfine hubs and DT champion spokes.
I didn't find a lot of information about Shimano wheels. They are lighter, but rear wheel has 32 spokes vs 36 on A319. I'm not light guy, so I decided to go for 36 spokes, which means A319.
But yesterday occasionally I've seen Shimano wheels in real life. They looks quite impressive.
Does someone have information about their durability etc?
