    Wilier Superleggera w/ Campy Shamal Ultras = happy camper :)

    Hey all,

    Just want to give a quick update on my new wheels... switched from the garbage Easton EC90 SL clinchers (melted on me on the way down from Mount Baldy, separate thread is lower on the page in this forum) to the Campy Shamal Ultras and i have to say I'm very happy with the switch.

    The Shamals are a VERY stiff wheel... and that's a good thing. Since i love to climb and climbing is 98% of my rides i find the extra stiffness to be a huge help.

    After about 500 miles and well over 40K ft of climbing. I give the wheels five stars !!

    Sweet build! Do you have interest in going tubeless with your two-way fits? I have gone tubeless on another wheel set and i'm very happy with it.

    The silver brake surface actually looks awesome on your bike, goes with the nipples, stickers etc.. Not sure about your bars though.

    i did... borrowed my buddy's fulcrum racing zero's, great wheel as well, i think they are practically the same wheel. The deciding factor was I'm running the campy group set and figured I'd match that.

    i was able to install the tires with out a tool if that means anything.

    no interest in going tubeless... tire/tube combo i run weigh's a little less the most tubeless tires. Plus i like to run very high psi, 130, i feel like it helps me climb.

    The Cinelli Neo Morphe bars are the only thing on the bike that i think could be lighter or better looking for that matter... It's the only part of the bike i wasn't a weight weenie about. My main goal was to have bars that felt comfy in my hands and gave me confidence when descending quickly... I've mounted many bars on this bike and these were bar far the most comfortable to me... They offer lots of different positions and that helps when your climbing 15K ft in a day.

    Tubeless is utterly stupid on a road bike IMO.

    Very nice.
    But you MUST line up "Schwalbe" with "2-way fit".

    Why? I've been running atoms tubeless for over a year, no flats and no problems. Heck they hold air better then a tube. I came off corsa cx and these ride almost the same. I just wish they were a tad wider. I flatted too often with the corsas. Wasn't worth the slightly better ride feel. I think I'll change to the fusions next time in hopes for a wider tire.

    I understand if you don't like tubeless after you tried it, but to say "utterly stupid" is a bit harsh.

    Weight was almost the same between my setups, maybe 30 grams more for the tubless, big f-ing deal.

    Bike looks great. I have Campy Eurus on my Wilier and I couldn't be happier with their performance.

    I'm kinda of nut when it comes to tires... i change them pretty often, as soon as i see a few to many cuts or any kind of side wall damage i replace them... with that said, the front tire is an Ultremo R1 that has about 1200 miles on it... and the rear is a ZX with about 800miles. The tires take a beating and keep on going !

    I switch tires depending on the ride i have planed as well... rides over 100+ miles, i use the Scwalbe Ultremo ZX's or Specialized Turbo's... Shorter rides i.e. 20 miles time trial, i use Conti Super sonics w/ super sonic tube... about 200 grams total

    I'm thinking about the Shamal Ultra, the non-2way, and plan on only using tubeless. I converted my Easton Ascent2's to tubeless and love the ride. The only time I flated was because they dont like cord showing. I need to look the tires over more often.
