'As Christmas approached I was thinking of a present for myself when the Craftworx email hit my inbox. I had dithered for a while over carbon wheels and having seen the offers I decided to commit.
I rang Craftworx and talked to Nathan to discuss my height, weight, type of bike, where I ride and how much I ride. With confidence I selected the ULTIMA AERO SL CARBON ROAD BIKE WHEELSET. Nathan rang me prior to the build to discuss a few final details and as promised the wheels were delivered several days later. The wheelset arrived in a well-designed sturdy package that was obviously designed for transport and protection.
On removal the wheels spun straight and true. I have now ridden approximately 300kms on these wheels on the flat, in headwind, crosswind and tailwinds on the flat and on some climbs and am compelled to say that they work as advertised.
It is interesting to note the reduced effort required to maintain a speed by having these wheels fitted.
The 38F/50R rim depth was of concern in the windy rides, however, it was of no concern, at no time could I feel the wind trying to move the bike or wheels about.
My consideration is that unless you are a sponsored rider Craftworx is a quality product that you can purchase and use with complete confidence.
