I asked my cycling experts with many years of road cycling experience, what is the ONE thing that I can do to my bike a 2012 Specialized Roubaix to make the biggest performance impact?
Replace the wheels with Mavic Ksyrium Elites! So I did!
What an AMAZING difference it makes!! The ability to accelerate, gain speed and maintain speed is the biggest thing. It helps immensely climbing hills, due to the wheels being so light and stiff. When cornering, the wheel turns crisply and sharply compared to the original wheels. You can carve a turn confidently. The ride quality is excellent, even the though the wheel is stiffer, it rides as smooth as the original wheels. I am Super Pumped with these wheels!
