Need help; Cane Creek Aros58

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

Need help; Cane Creek Aros58

I was just browsing the forums late week and popped into a bike with some cool wheels namely the Cane Creek Aros 58 with blue decals.
I cannot find it anymore.
Does anyone has any experience with these wheels?
I checked with my local reseller and he can get those wheels although they are extremely rare in Europe.
If you have a photos, please post (especially blue).

Any help appreciated.

I assume you're talking about this:



The decals are custom. He's over at weightweenies, so you might want to ask him about the wheels and where he got the decals made.

It's clearly Dura Ace.

PS: He goes by RacerBoy on the WeightWeenies forum.

They are rebadged Zipp rims I believe, the older non dimpled style. You can find them pretty regularly on Ebay.

That is correct; they are essentially older 404 rims (the 360 rim, to be completely accurate).

Cool to know Cane Creek offers a way to coordinate colours.

At least I got the bike correct on the first try.

Why do you consider it poor? Based on the notoriety of zipp rims cracking Id say its an excellent recommendation so people dont delude themselves into thinking the carbon rims will hold up to their weight.

So let me see, 190lbs=86.18kg.
That's a close call for me
