If I was quick enough to justify them and I'd got the bank balance to buy them it wouldn't even be a question - they'd be on my bike. I'm not and I haven't so I'm not having.......




How much are they going to save me over Florida's bike course????

Don't answer that, I don't want to know Frustrated Police

So what you're saying is they would be great for a flat course like Florida? Twisted Evil

www.probikekit.co.uk are doing some great deals on Mavic wheels, I've just bought a pair of ksuriums for 323. the Carbone wheels are 470. I almost bought the Carbone's but the Ksyriums won over as I think they're a more versatile wheel.
Having said that I might order the Carbone's too as they're just a grat deal.
