The best Training wheel setup ?


Recommended Posts

What would you guys suggest is the best road wheel setup for training purposes ?


Cheap is usually bit heavier, but robust, durable and good for training (crappier rolling resistance etc)


What set of rims would one use ? Some Shimano rims Alu clinchers ??


Tires - Conti Gatorskins + tubes with slime and maby even liners LOL


Solid setup to keep on going and going - no flats and no emotion when hitting pot holes or gravel.


Then use the Easton SLX for racing Big%20smile


Any Ideas - its just economics - don't want to spoil my wheels doing rides in 5o'clock traffic dodging glass and potholes, and have the added "benifit" of training heavier wheels, and will feel the dif on racing day

I have Shimano 105 hubs laced with 32 DT spokes onto DRC rims with Conti 25c Gatorskins, I would fit 28c's but my frame doesn't allow it...take it off road when needed...

Do you run slime in the tubes aswell ?


What frame to you have that you are willing to take it off road ?
