I dont have any experience board the original SS but have I met quite a few people who are fanatical about this model. Strangely, some of them haven't ever actually owned one. The original SS must must be one of those bikes that really inspire. To me it looks like a Lamborghini sports car on two wheels with pedals. Its got that "its going fast even when its staying still" kinda thing going on.dans160 said:. Questions are:
Is there anything else that can be done that will make a bigish difference? I thought about a set of Mavic CrossMax SX rims but find conflicting stories about their weight and I think I have everything else pretty much covered. Also, does anyone have any experiences of using the Floats with the Sopestyle, if so I'd be interested to hear your views.
I do own some SX hoops and I can say they are very strong for their weight. There are lighter wheels and stronger wheels but few would be such a nice combination of both. Only downside is if you total them its going to make you cry cause spares are very expensive compared to a standard wheelset.
Hope to see some pix soon mate
