5ft 10 - 145 lbs and trying to lose 1-2 inches on the waist line (initial goal).
Decent level of fitness but after a 2 year layoff (new job did that) its hard but trying to get back into shape.
Haven't been on a road bike in many moons so really looking forward to getting back on the horse.
Got myself a Wilier Izoard that I'm currently building and just waiting on a few tidbits to be shipped out to me before I officially start it off.
What I don't have is wheels. So I said I was gonna get some cheap Campy Khamsin for $140 from probikekit.com and use those as "intro wheels" then later pony up for something better.
Last few meters to my home is bumpy with potholes but other than that its pretty good (I may just end up walking the bike ).
Tiny hills are everywhere, nothing monstrous in the immediate area but once my fitness level comes back I intend on going out to tackle some of the big boy climbs (Its all relative, I live on a small island ).
Funds are a concern but I'm wondering if I should forego the Khasmins and get a better all round set for about $500-550 that I can use everyday and for when my competitive streak rears its head?
I did a thorough read through of this forum and have seen a few names come up as "recommended" wheel builders. I tried compiling a list and came up with these guys:
bicyclewheelwarehouse.com (I think this is T.Mike fav )
Can you recommend any other wheel builders? This may not only help me but others new to the forum who are looking for reputable builders.
I was thinking something in a 27mm - 32mm / 1450 - 1550 gr would be a nice spilt between aero and weight.
What build would you recommended?
Thank you all.
