PARIS – ROUBAIX WHEELS

RoubaixUndisputed roughest and toughest roads are included in the Queen of the Classics on purpose. Now you can ride the Paris Roubaix Sportive over these same ‘unbelievable’ roads- tracks.

As all the professional riders use wheels especially made for such arduous conditions, most cyclists who ride the sportive use their usual wheels. The professional riders wouldn’t use the same wheels in Paris Roubaix and Tour of Lombardy – Why would you?

If you are spending a few days away from home and spending a chunk of money to compete in this event, think seriously why would you ride factory built wheels with radial – straight pull spokes on front wheels and offside rear? Radial originally used for unpaced events on smooth roads or pursuit riding on tracks, where you do not go up and down the banking.

Paris -RoubaixThey will compromise your ride, your bike handling and shake the fillings out of your teeth.

Wonder why you get aching neck, shoulders, hands, and wrists?

For lighter riders and ladies I can build a ‘special’ pair of Paris Roubaix wheels incorporating extra compliancy.
