Looking at new road wheels to replace the crappy stock ones I have now, ideally sub £400 ish.
Searching on here and the web shimano rs80 seem to be the general consensus but how stiff are these? At 85/90 kg and a bit of a pedal masher I'm concerned I'm going to notice the flex, its a low spoke count. Anybody else at a similar weight have these?
Fulcrum racing 3 seem to get reviews as being a bit stiffer but heavier and are ok on the money, ksyrium elites seem to be the favoured wheels for lightweight but stiff but are about £450 so a bit much. Are they worth the extra? Anyone use the racing 3s? Plenty of stuff on here about the rs80s and ksyriums but not so much on the fulcrums.
The other option is hope hoops but all the stock ones are heavy, I can spec a lower spoke count on a hand built with stans rims but then it's back up towards £500. If I go hand built would 20/24 be a good compromise between weight and stiffness?
Any other options out there?
