And i know most guys on here offer very good free advice.
When Bfergie raised his disapproval of my choice.
I was just making the point of what I was told clearly by the shop.
I'm in the middle . I made my choice purely on the experience I have with these wheels .
I do not disbelieve Bfergie for one minute .
But you put your trust in Bike shops to help you out.
I did not intend to cause any ill feeling .
They are local and it is a minefield on the Web.
Mikeez, hopefully you will treat the advice given by your LBS on this occasion re the wheels with a bit of scepticism - Worth bearing in mind for the next time you're in the market to buy something.
As I said before, they are trying to make a living by selling you what they have in stock or what they make a decent margin on, and what they can get quickly. Doesn't make them bad people, I would do the same!
Heading into a personal headwind....
Neither, I don't even own a bike. LOL
I have been to 5 LBS in the last 3 years, I would trust only one (Epic Cycles and not that local to me). Take from that what you will. They are there to make a sale and would sell you a penny farthing if they thought you thought it was a good deal. People on here have a lot of useful information and it is worth following or at least researching before dismissing.
Enjoy your riding and hope you get what you need, internet advice or not.
