So i got a set of Easton EA90sl clinchers for my trek madone. They were great for about 6 months, then my first spoke broke on the front wheel. Last thread at the nipple. Had the spoke replaced and two weeks later anohter broke spoke....3 later my local LBS sent to Easton for warranty. They sent a brand new front wheel. Low and behold after about 6 mohts of riding break my first spoke on the new one, two weeks later i get my second broke spoke.....my local LBS is getting it warranty replaced again as they wont take them back telling me that they are wheels over 12 months old.
I am 6ft and 190lbs and live in Colorado, do a lot of training in the hills climbing and race local crits, as well as road races. I have moved from a Trek Madone to a Specialized Tarmac SL4.
Looking for a new wheel set that is still responsive and stiff like Easton, but reliable at the same time that I can train on, race, and climb well.
I have looked at the ROL SLR, and the Mavic kysrium SL. I have heard nothing but good about both wheel sets just debating which route to go. I have spoken with Sean at ROl and he has been nothing but helpful in answering questions and helping to instill faith in the ROL's which is what I am leaning towards
Just wanted to see what others think and some general advice.
