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

williams cycling 30x?

Anyone got them? How do you like them? I am looking for a good training wheel. As of now i weigh 205 (but will probably drop to 195) so i need a stout wheel. For the price these seem to be top notch, atleast according to testrider.com.....

I have the System 19 wheelset and love it, light and pretty sturdy. I'm sure the 30X is just as good though slightly heavier, but for a training wheel it should be great. Ask any questions to Keith (company owner) and he'll answer promptly.

I also have 19s and they've been great. Broke a spoke due to running over a branch and Keith replaced the spoke for free (in fact he sent me about 10 spokes hah). Good wheels at a good price.

I have the 19's as well and am very happy with them. Don't seem to need a lot of truing (162 lbs.), light and pretty stiff. I had a freehub start to make noise, called Keith on a Friday and had a new hub (free) by Tuesday. Really fine customer service and you can get Keith on the phone. Also a fan of his brake pads - for some reason I never get metal in those pads. I know they are softer and wear faster, but like them a lot as I hate picking metal out of pads. I would definitely buy from Williams again.

I purchased the Williams 30x about four weeks ago and have a little over 600 miles on them... I bought the x's as a precaution, as I could have probably went with the 30s (me, 6'2 180), given the urban riding and plentiful potholes I do in Saint Louis.

While I would caution my recommendations based upon the short ownership period, I can firmly report that these are the smoothest feeling wheels I have ever owned (and I have owned a lot, at price-points that far exceed this bargain). They seem durable, but time will tell.

Also, as others have said, Keith Williams has great customer service.

Highly recommended.

While I don't have a set of Williams wheels, I can vouch for the fast responase times from Keith. I've e-mailed him a few questions about the system 58's and I normally get a response in a few hours.
