Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

wheels wheels wheels

So I'm jonesing for some new wheels. Right now I have American classic victory wheels from 2008. here are my finalist

2016 Altamont Alloy Clincher - Boyd Cycling
https://www.coloradocyclist.com/dura...dt-swis-rr-440
A300 - Light Performance - PSIMET Custom Wheels : PSIMET Custom Wheels
wiggle.com | Fulcrum Racing 3 Clincher Wheelset | Road Race Wheels

I'm no longer racing, so I'm just getting wheels for the sake of getting something fun and new, maybe help get a few strava segments.

I'm likely heavier than you, so I'd appreciate the extra spokes of the 440 or the extra depth of the Altamont. If that's less of an issue for you, PSIMET seems like a solid choice. Did you consider November's Ti hub/build?

If these are going to be fun wheels, go as light as you can.
