As a surprise 10th anniversary present for Mrs Stoner I want to get her some race wheels for her triathlon bike.
Not to put a too finer point on it, but her cycle craft isn't amazing and I'm cautious about putting her on carbon rims for braking reasons.
PX bundle carbon pads with their carbon tubs, but even so they're not going to be quite as good as using the aluminium braking surface on the carbon clinchers are they?
Is it a real world problem or a marketing invention? Im sure she'd really like to roll on some 150psi+ carbon tubs, but will the braking be an issue?
(and anyone know what the CSN Superleggera XL50 at Ribble are like? PX prices arent compelling on their own)
