Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts

I'd take the dura ace clinchers because they have a wider rim and I prefer the bearing style. have you checked out flo cycling? http://www.flocycling.com/wheels_flo_60_select.php they do have a carbon breaking surface so you will have to change your brake blocks. Here are some other options with aero info: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum ... 30#p878930

yeah i love the look of the c50's, iam currently using mavic ksyrium elites and would i notice a big difference with using the deep dish c50. I also see the dura ace 7900 c 35 around the same price on ribble. Are they basicly the same as the 50 but just different size? Also with using these am i able to still use my ultegra brake pad's.
Cn i please have the link for thi please

I am pretty happy with my c50's... They are pretty stiff and so far have held up well to some good abuse on races... But I regret not getting tubulars now.
You sure can. Enjoy.
I just got my 7900 C50s today. I come up from some easton circuits and mavic kyserium elites.
I had the mavics in mind but went ahead with the more expensive shimano anyway purely for the looks (shallow I know).
first thoughts are they spin up around the same, perhaps ever so slightly slower on hills. but they ride completely differently. not as comfy as they are stiffer it seems, more responsive, definately feel more more sturdy once you get them up to speed. Only way to describe the sensation is its simiar to the effect of spinning a wheel and sitting on a office chair. Seem faster when going 35+kmph, not had em long enough to say if they increase overall average. Hubs run really well also. I would quite honestly imagine the mavics being a very similar experience, I think they are a bit heaver though?
overall I am loving the new wheels alot of money but look and ride great. And to be honest its how you feel when your on your prized bike that makes the difference to me.
Was looking at a C35 rear at Wiggle, the last couple weeks. They were on special at $630...but back up to $920 now... Shoulda bit while the biting was good!
Congrats on your new wheelset, they look awesome!!
