    Fuji SL1 Pro - Oval W524?

    Hello all,

    I have purchased a SL1 pro a few months ago and I love the bike.

    My question is on these wheels Oval W524. I have tried to find some information on them online but it looks like they don't exist

    The guy from the bike shop did said I should upgrade them because they are weak and I weight at around 235. Now I rode the bike I would say 200+ miles so far and I didn't notice any issues with them... should I continue to ride them until they break or is there a good chance that they will just break from under me when i'm going at around 34miles on a descent and fall straight on my face?

    Thanks for your help!

    they won't break catastrophically, just become out of true..maybe break a spoke or two...they'll let you know when they need to be replaced. they are standard, factory OEM wheels...just don't expect miracles. when they go, replace them with a high spoke count set to handle your weight.
    or just lose weight and forget about it all.
