Oh no...been offered wheels....

OK, now due to the high reputation Mike has at btown I'm probably just going to agree to Mikes suggestion but I feel a bit weird agreeing to something I know nothing about!? So I figured, I'll post the question here, fool myself that it counts as homework then make an informed decision before agreeing anyway! :lol:

To go on my Argon 18 Krypton frame Mike has offered me the mavic kyserium elites 09

Has anyone got any opinions on these? I basically use my bike for the 15 mile commute to work and rides around the peak district....oh and the tri's I've entered for the first time this year! :shock:

Just looking around in the same price bracket there are also Fulcrum Racing 3 but I haven't a clue to the differences!?

Any info much appreciated!!!

I don't know but would probably bow to Mike's judgement...you could always ask Mike what the difference is between the two/why he thinks one is better than the other?

Go with the Mavics, you will not be disappointed.....they are far superior to the Fulcrums. END OF...

No worries, it's all sorted! :D

Judging by my past bike shop experiences I was half expecting the 'no mate that's what you were buying' or the 'sorry but you've bought them now and they're technically second hand now' kind of replies but...

"Sorry, I'll look to see where the Elites are and will then arrange a swap" :D :D :D :D

Mike - btownbikes - a WELL deserved reputation!
