    DT Axis 3.0 wheels

    I wonder if I should change out the DT Axis wheels that came on the Roubaix, for a set of Fulcrum 5s that I have already.

    I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted a ham sandwich or a turkey sandwich when I was making my lunch this morning. I went with peanut butter and Jelly.

    I did not like the DT Swiss Axis 3 tires at all. Switch them out as I don't know if u could do worse.

    If the wheels have DT hubs then I probably wouldn't change them. DT hubs are known for being really good high quality.

    Specialized, AFAIK, the hubs are derived from the DT 240 design.... differences? Dunno. But all I know, it's not an off the shelf DT 240

    I have DT axis 4.0 and while the hubs are not bad, the build itself sucks. No lateral stiffness and go out of true way too fast.
