Wheelset Comparison

Cycling is a wonderful childhood memory. Back then we did not care about road wheelsets or any other upgrades for that matter. Remembering it being fun and a great way to exercise, it was often a means of transportation. Now fast forward, riding for adults can be a different experience.

While as an adult you may ride a bike for the same reasons as a child, you also have likely come to expect more from your purchases – and can afford to purchase better quality products. This is where an upgrade to the wheelset comes into play. Today road wheelsets vary dramatically in price and quality without clear indications of what makes one better than another. See this comparison to help you get the new upgraded wheelset you need for the upcoming season.

Great Tips On Exercise

oatmeal wooden spoon with yellow measuring tape-blue-sm
Have exercise misconceptions prevented you from starting an exercise program? Clear up any confusion and let these exercise tips improve your workout routine. Hopefully none of these common exercise myths, mistakes and misconceptions have prevented you from working out.
1. Common Mistake: Failure to set goals. Do you exercise without a clear goal in mind? Having a clear goal set is a critical step in exercise and weight loss success.  Tracking your progress in a journal will help ensure you see your improvements, will help motivate you and help you meet your ultimate goal.
2. Common Misconception: No Pain, No Gain. Pain is your body’s way of letting you know something is wrong. Do not ignore this. When you go beyond exercise and testing yourself, you will encounter physical discomfort and need to overcome it. An example of this would be training for a marathon. It is important that you have the “base training” before getting into the advance training. The base training develops the body and gets it ready for extensive training. You need to learn to “read” your body. Is the heavy breathing because you are pushing your body or could it be the beginning of a heart attack. Exercise is important. Do it correctly and you can do it for the rest of your life.
It is normal for you to hurt after you exercise, but it must be done gradually with a good amount of rest periods to allow proper healing. There are two common problems here with beginning exercisers. You can cause long-lasting damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments if you work out while you are in pain, without allowing enough rest time to heal. You might find yourself in constant and long-lasting pain if you do this which means that you will no longer be able to exercise.
If you wake up the next morning after you exercised and can barely drag your aching body out of bed because everything hurts, you are going to be less motivated to exercise at all. Constant pain is a sure way to kill your exercise program.
3. Common Mistake: Sacrificing Quality for Quantity. When you are ready to increase the number of reps of a particular exercise, and strengthen the corresponding muscles, instead of forcing yourself to do a little more each time try decreasing the number of reps in a set but increase the number of sets. Also, back off to half your usual number of reps but add a couple of more sets. You will feel less tired and will be able to gain strength in your fast-twitch muscles.
4. Common Myth: Weight Training Makes Women Bulky. Weight training for a woman will strengthen and tone muscle, burn fat and increase metabolism, not build mass. Women do not produce enough testosterone to build muscle mass the way that men do.
5. Common Mistake: Over-Emphasizing Strengths. You should start focusing on your points rather then what you are good at. This will help you balance things. For example, if your lower body is stronger than your upper body, then try to work only on this area one day a week.
Being smart about how you exercise will take you a long way. It is important to have a healthy body so get out there and start exercising today.

ROL Race SLR – Alloy Clincher Road Bike Wheelset

Race SLR – Alloy Clincher Road Bike Wheelset

I was in the middle of weight and riding style to feel completly comfortable so I sent an email asking about a recommendation. The suggestion was for the ROL Race SLR wheelset as a replacement. The transformation was incredible. The first thing I noticed was the hubs spin smoother and longer than my stock bontrager wheels. I never realized that the old wheels were so heavy. I save 1.25 lbs rear and .75 front. My climbing performance increased by almost 10%, and the cornering is super crisp and confidence-inspiring. This ROL Race SLR wheelset is highly recommended.

  • Lighter Weight: The 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is 75 grams lighter than its previous iteration.
  • Includes quick-release skewers with a wider more ergonomic handle to provide more leverage for opening and closing. When closed, lever contours neatly with the frame.

 

The Zipp 404 Firecrest Carbon Clincher is a versatile, do-it-all wheelset that has been proven on race courses all across the globe. With a new, faster, and more stable rim profile with AeroBalance technology, the 2018 404 Firecrest delivers all the expected versatility in a faster, more stable package. Featuring a depth and shapen proven in all conditions, the 404 Firecrest is an all-around performer and the standard by which all other wheels are measured. Its 58mm rim depth is a classic that has carried athletes to victory in every kind of event and situation – every triathlon distance, breakaways, field sprints and hilly finishes. Bringing in more of their technology, Zipp’s ABLC Sawtooth dimple design helps manage airflow around the rim, contributing to the faster, more stable performance.

At the center of the 404 Firecrest is Zipp’s 77/177 hubset with best-in-class durability, bearing protection with no pre-load adjustment needed.

Great Wheels!

These wheels are simply superb. Not ultra-lightweight, but they more than make up for it in stiffness, aerodynamics, and ride quality – and they look great on the bike. Amazon sometimes sells these for as low as $1500 – if you see them at that price point, do yourself a favor and upgrade. Highly recommended.

Zipp 30 Road Wheelset

Here is the review of the Zipp 30 road wheelset.

Road wheelset equals speed, ride quality, and durability. These are the features we look for when researching and testing clincher road wheelsets. Sure, there is a plethora of choices when it comes to picking a set of new hoops, but narrowing down what’s realistic for your personal needs as a cyclist requires a look into what’ll actually benefit your style of riding.

This was the reason Zipp built its new 30 Clincher Road Wheelset. It’s an everyday, do-anything set of wheels for the demanding cyclist who knows that quality should always go hand-in-hand with a solid value. Zipp used its quarter-century of wheel developing experience to build the new 30s from the ground up.

The new wheels were designed with Zipp’s proven aerodynamic principles, using what Zipp calls a ‘hybrid toroidal’ aluminum rim. This means that it bulges out behind the tire for enhanced aerodynamics. The ‘hybrid’ part essentially means Zipp uses different manufacturing methods than with its 101 clinchers, such as parallel brake tracks rather than sloped ones Like Zipp’s other wider-is-better wheel platforms, the 30mm deep rim profile incorporates a relatively wide 21.5mm rim bed for stability, cornering grip, and overall ride comfort. At the heart of the wheelset is its new hub design, which is 10- and 11-speed compatible.

Because the overarching theme of the new wheelset emphasizes reliability, Zipp wanted to engineer a hub that was built to take a beating and keep on spinning as smoothly as the day the wheels arrived from the factory. To create such a hub, Zipp formed the shell from ultra-strong and lightweight 7075 T-6 aluminum. Stainless-steel bearings were then housed within the hubs, ensuring years of silky-smooth riding.

Additionally, Zipp built the hubs with a ‘precision set’ design, meaning no pre-load adjustment is required — simply fasten the quick-release skewers and hit the tarmac. To ensure the road wheelset is able to handle the toughest road surfaces, Zipp laced the 30s with legendary Sapim CX-Ray spokes.
