So I had a little bit of a crash last fall, and unfortunately my rear wheel went bust (brand new Roval Rapide CLX). But, my front wheel came out unharmed…
Looking around a bit, I am starting to feel that there are wheel sets that has a bit better bang for the buck… So I need some guidance…
The bike that the wheels are gonna go on: S-Works Venge
Q: Should I sell my front wheel, CLX Rapide, and then buy a pair of DT Swiss ARC 1400 62mm: DT Swiss ARC 1400 Dicut® Carbon 62 Disc CL Wheelset Road Bike Wheel Sets Disc | Bike-Discount
Or should I just buy a new Rapide CLX rear wheel to complement the front one that I already have?
The only thing that the Rapides win is in weight… by like 200g, other than that, seems like hubs are better on the DT Swiss?
A new rear Rapide CLX wheel is like 100 euros cheaper than a complete set of the DT Swiss…
Another alternative could be: DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut® Carbon 80 Disc CL Wheelset Road Bike Wheel Sets Disc | Bike-Discount
I live in Sweden so lots of rolling hills, so weight isn’t really a huge deal (I am 78kg also…)
Or would 80mm be too deep?
