I’m looking to buy a bit of speed and just upgrade for fun too. I’m considering upgrading the wheels.
I currently have Alexrim Race 32 wheels with GP 4000S II. The Alexrim’s weigh in at 2.33 kg for the pair.
I’m looking at either the Ultegra RS-770 C30 wheels. They weigh in at 1.639 kg. Price $1,150/pair.
Or Duraace R9100 C24 wheels. The Duraace’s weigh in at 1.389 kg. Price $1,550/pair.
I’ll likely go with GP 5000 tires on either wheel I buy.
My question is do I either:
- Stick with my Alexrims (Option A)
- Go with Ultegra (Option B)
- Shell out for the Duraace (Option C)
One thing I am doing for sure is upgrading the brakes regardless.
Lets keep this simple and please don’t give me a bunch of different wheels cause I’ll get shoppers fatigue just A, B or C please (and why).
Note: I live in North Vancouver (lots of mountains) and I have lots of elevation rides like the 122 km Whistler Gran Fondo…
