Michael’s Cervelo is a very stiff riding race frame and he was looking to improve the comfort.  He recently had the chance to ride a friend’s wheels that had a modern wide rim, and he was immediately sold on the benefits and wanted a set for his own.  We used the new Pacenti SL23s which are really wide, pretty light, and tubeless ready.  The Bitex hubs are also light weight, come in lots of drilling and color options, and they don’t break the bank.  We used a 28/24 spoke count to balance weight, stiffness, and durability with Michael’s weight and riding style.  Enjoy the new wheels Michael!
