    2013 Carbon F29 incoming...do I switch the wheels?

    Anyone have any feedback on the Reynolds carbon wheel sets that are coming on the F29 Carbon 1 and Scalpel Carbon 1? I've debated whether I keep them, or go another route. I'm 185 lbs., so Stan's Race Gold's won't work...I could do Crest, though.

    Is that a wise decision? Anyone with thoughts on whether the Reynolds Carbon or Stan's Crest would be stiffer?

    Any other thoughts on wheel choices for the F29 Carbon 1?

    Run em.

    I have never owned the wheel set in question or any carbon wheels. They come with a 2 year guarantee, which is a nice feature you will not get from Stans. I doubt there is a signifigant performance advantage to be had by swapping wheels over the ones you already have.

    I ha e two sets of Reynolds road wheels. And they are awesome. I've stopped worrying about durability. I personally prefer the Reynolds over the ENVE on the Ultimate. Plus they come with 2 year NQA warranty from Reynolds. Give them a try. Is what I think.

    Didn't I see this same question in 29er components? Keep the Reynolds...they are excellent!
