^ that's why I said if you wanted to go with a set of high end wheels. I still think the shock absorbing nature of the topolinos would be better suited than the Rolfs. In either case however, you're risking destroying the wheel, and very likely shortening its useful life.

It becomes a question of how much you're willing to pay.

Also I took the question to be in the context of the OP doing the cyclosportifs before the Tour of Flanders, and Paris Roubaix.

If you're trying to do those competitively, being able to repair a wheel is likely not your primary decision criteria.
