This brand new Racing 5 has been brought in for 2015 with one purposes in mind. They have been designed with a slightly wider rim to facilitate an easier fitting of 25c tyres.

Fulcrum 5 cx

Wheelset delivered quickly. Checked them and front wheel is good. However rear wheel has some notchiness in the bearings which feel a little rough. It only spins freely for half as many revolutions as the front. Freewheel which is fairly quiet has a lot of drag also. Weight of the front comes in as advertised, but the rear is a disappointing 100g heavier at 990g. QR are approx 140g extra to this. Disappointed with the rear wheel.

Wheel deal

Bought these after reading favourable reviews. Stuck em on a trek hybrid replacing Bontrager nebulas. Also replaced 32c nebulas with continental grand Prix 4000 25c tyres. The difference is a true transformation. I've increase speed by 5k per hour and averaging 35k on flats seems pedestrian. Just standard clip pedals (not clipless) and no shaved legs or spandex (sorry girls). Just blown away by performance increase... has to be experienced to be believed and for the price.... staggering. Get them. If u r hesitating get over it u won't have any regrets. Also probike kit was an awesome experience. Swift dispatch and arrival to Brisbane Australia with no delays. Super experience, I'll be back for more when I get bored of smashing it with the current setup. Love riding so much more now.
