Looking for a new set of road wheels for a bike and came across flo cycling. Curious if anyone has had any experience with them if they were clydes? Thanks.

I'm 217 at the moment, ... just updated my bike (Trek Domane) with Flo 60's last summer. absolutely love'em so far. and the folks there at Flo are great to deal with. I have a few hundred miles on 'em so far....before the deep freeze set in here in NW NJ...

I would bet most clydes are using aftermarket wheels or hand built wheels might be a more appropriate title. I have a couple of extra sets Veulta HD are my go to everyday riding wheels they are super strong. I have a set of HED wheels that are lighter that I use for events and organized rides that are super nice too. DTSwiss also has some options that are strong for us hefty folks. I have DT's on my CX bike I think the TK540 is the rim model..... there are lots of strong wheels out there but these are just what I have had good luck with.
