yeah, all these new road bikes with the 10 spoke wheels, I dunno but seems like there's no WAY those can be as strong as a good old 36 spoker.

Straight gauge dt spokes.
Both sets are solid, and stay in true very well.

You should lace a set up. It is easy, and cool to ride a set of wheels you have built.

No kidding. Probably use 36 spokes on tandems now.

BTW Askel, they are 3 cross pattern.

If you're into clydsdale (sp?) territory, go with a beefy 36h rim. They make some stout stuff for touring, tandems and BIG boys... Since you are on the VIP list at the local shop, show up with some beer and just shoot the shit about a new set of wheels for the road bike... see what they have to say.

I've been running the stock 16-spoke Korsos on my 'cheapie' Scattante and I'm 240#. They went out of true at about 50mi, but I think that's because they weren't tight enough to start. Now, at about 550mi on them, they're due for another tweak as they're just slightly out of true.

No issues yet on a variety of pavement conditions, but if you believe some of the folks at bikeforums.net, they're going to explode and kill me.

I may switch to 25mm tires when the OEM Kendas wear out just to spread the load out a bit more.

A 48 spoke wheel is typically used for loaded tandem touring. They usualy weigh a little under 10 lbs. Phil Wood makes a 48 hole hub that you wont have to stretch your frame to make fit. Why settle for practical when overkill is so much more satisfying.


So sayeth the KLR owner.



I hear what your saying and if it proves to be an issue or I find a spare couple hundred $$, I'll look at new wheels. Until then, pedal on!

I've never touched my ksyrium equipes...but i weigh 132 lbs. Check out www.roadbikereview.com and search for clyde wheels or similar. I also agree that the shop guys will tell you all you need to know (IF THEY'RE RIDERS)....I train with my lbs wrenches (they're roadies) and sometimes hang out for hours at the shop just talking shit.

+1 Built all but a few of my wheelsets. Including the 3 that I'm keeping!

Its theraputic among other things.

BUT the best part of all is if you whang a wheel on a ride, you KNOW how to fix it!

Remind me to check the storage unit next time I'm down. I may have at least a front wheel that you can ride. May very well have some 36 hole rims 'stashed.'

On dotphoto, there's a 'share' button that gives you the url for that pic. about yer hosting site. May hafta dig around.

Buddy of mine has a 9.8. Found it for him at one of the LBSs in Sandy Eggo. Seems it was on consignment 'cause the owner won it in a raffle and didn't want it. $1600. Brand spankin new. Complete with XTR. I wished that it was my size! Oh well.
