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

Why do you need pictures? All these wheels pretty much use the same exact parts. Black and shaped like a donut.

If anyone is going to pick wheels in this range then it really comes down to three things: 1. Do you really want carbon clincher wheels with a carbon brake surface? 2. Is warranty an issue? 3. Price.

I wish we could see how people vote. I piked Neuvation, I'm sure Psimet went with other, that left four votes for Soul and two for Williams. If the OP voted, which one did he go for? Could this be a shill thread?

I have three pairs of Neuvations, including one pair of C50s, and I think they're awesome. They're not the most durable wheels out there. But at the price you could buy two pairs and throw one out when you're done. I train on a pair of R38s. Got about 6,000 miles on them. Trued them once. Perfect.

if you're going to shell out for carbon, spend a bit more and get tubulars. well worth it.

otherwise... all 3 are good, get the one whose decals you like.

I did not vote. I don't believe I should. I am pretty transparant about what I do. I have too good of a history here to f' that up.

As for pictures....I have a ton in the cameras I have but nothing really posted. I have been busy building and riding demo sets. I am probably going to rent them in the Chicago area as well. That and the sign guy bailed on my decals. Got 2-3 backups going....

...but.....

This picture is of the 50mm clincher demo set I built and put on my bike. The decals in this picture were first generation and simply sticky paper. They look like crap in this picture and weren't event put on right. ...so please don't use that as an indication.

They are stiff as crap (sometimes like riding steel disks) and fast as hell. My niche is that I can build them with a wide array of hubs and spokes as well as lacing....the others can't. I also feel that the others went the fashionable way of going with low spoke counts - I went 24f/28r. It should last as a training or racing set - however it is to be ridden..

but here you go *EDIT: For the record I have 50mm tubulars as well*
