Oooh, another What Wheels thread!
#1
Guys,

looking to upgrade the hoops on my boardman, have £150-200 and have a couple of options I fancy;
Superstar Pave 28 Ultra £195, 1533g/pair
or
Forza Cirrus Road from Merlin, £170 (were £400) 1600g/pair

The Forza's had a 4* rating in CyclingWeekly at £400 in 2012 and seem a fantastic deal for £170, and the Pave's have had good reviews too.

Any experience/worries on either, or opinions on what I should get and how much more I should spend? ;D

Well I took the plunge and went for the 4ZA Cirrus wheels, arrived yesterday c/w Rubino Pro tyres and Vittoria ultralight tubes.
Wheels were actually 1.7Kg/pair, and with tyres n tubes they're 2.25Kg.
Looked at & felt a set of £500+ Mavic Kyserium's on Sunday, they were 2.1kg inc tyres n tubes, so I'm quite happy with the weight of these.

Haven't fitted these yet, but am interested to see what difference they make to the ride, and also weigh the stock wheels.

I missed this thread. I'm interested to hear how you get on with them. I'm in the market for a new wheelset in that sort of price range, and have had my eye on Fulcrum Racing 5, at 1645g. I'm also considering the Fulcrum Racing Quattro, which is 35mm deep and about 100g heavier.
