    ROL Carbon 58's vs Amercian Classic Carbon 58's (tubular)

    If you had to choose between the two which wheelset would you go with and why?

    Obviously the AC's have a higher bling factor.

    I know one wouldn't be buying 58's for riding where wheel weight matters much but still those AC's a really heavy. And I put in bold another reason I wouldn't consider them. Man are those and eye sore.
    I don't know much (anything) about the hubs on each but I can't think of any reason someone would pick the AC's over the Rols other than if they really wanted an aluminum brake surface.

    I think the published weight of the AC's includes skewers. I see them listed on different sites as under 1,400g.

    I was looking at clinchers. Just noticed you were looking at tubs. Sorry.

    I'd buy ROL because Sean was a pleasure to deal with and gives #1 CS. Also, the Volants I have run as good as day 1 and came in trued to perfection, way better than any other wheel I had seen before.

    Thanks! I'm well aware of how great Sean Lambert and ROL is. I have about 4,000 miles on two different sets of Race SL's now (the first one was warrantied). I'm looking specifically for feedback on ROL's carbon and the AMC's carbon wheels though. Hopefully someone here has experience with both.
