    Fellow Clydes riding Roval Control 29s?

    Hey guys,

    I am getting the Stouts warrantied on my Carve Comp and they are wanting me to pay $250 to upgrade to the Controls... Just curious to see if I should put my money elsewhere, and if the Controls are legitimate wheels for a 235-240lb rider.

    Thanks

    At your weight I think you're on the border of their rating. The traverse line might be a better fit. I've had good luck with my traverse set and I'm around 275.

    Thanks for your feedback man. After much research that is the route I'm going. Only problem is they are out of stock until December! After a 20 mile ride this Sunday my stouts didn't exhibit the same problems tho, so hopefully they can last until I get the traverse.

    Glad yours are working for you!
