I am a bigtall rider, and I needed some affordable and durable wheels. These 32-spoke wheels give me a confident ride without adding much weight, and the DT Swiss rims look fantastic on my bike!
This 105DT wheel is an excellent value for indoor training and fits in as my short ride corncob cassette wheel. I normally ride a set of HED wheels matched to DT Swiss hubs built by Sugar Wheel-works in Portland Oregon. I am very satisfied with the performance, true and stiffness of the Shimano 105DT rear wheel.
I was looking for a rear wheel replacement after my last had cracked. I was trying to work on a somewhat restrained budget, but still wanted something with decent weight and durability. This wheel is great, and while I could have assembled the parts for it myself, it would have taken time and tools I dont currently have.
I havent taken it out too much on the Chicago potholed streets just yet, but my few rides have been smooth and happy.
