I’m actually up in Alberta, Canada. The local city has a great river valley path and trail system, but I get to do part of the Tour of Alberta route (Calgary-Bragg Creek-Okotoks area) for the charity ride I do every year. Plus, my work does a Banff-Jasper ride each year and that is astoundingly scenic, challenging in the climbs and wild in the descents (I was pushing 55 mph a couple years ago coming off the Bow Summit…it was awesome and part of the reason I am concerned about braking).
Thanks for the well wishes he on a decision…I think it will come down to building my own (I ride my own mtb and commuter wheels, so it would be easy enough to build a road set…but parts can be a hassle and expensive if you want a custom look), getting something like Hunt SuperDuras (think Zipp 101 like), an alu/carbon hybrid like a Flo60 or something pure carbon like the 7.10s. Each has its own pros and cons…so, decisions, decisions.
Hey @James_Ferrer, you wouldn’t sell just a set of 7.10 rims, would you?
Actually, with the Sapim upgrade, even the Epic 5.6’s would do me at winter weight…more to consider.
