Biking

I’m an aspiring cycling racer... on a budget. What kind of wheels should I get?

I’m an aspiring cycling racer... on a budget. What kind of wheels should I get?

I'm convinced there's no objective info out there about bike wheels anymore. I want a set of lightweight aero road-bike wheels for racing, but do real people actually pay $2,000 bucks for carbon deep-dish wheels? In other words, are carbon wheels disposable, are budget carbon wheels worth a look, and would an aluminum clincher wheel really be just as good for crits and road races? What's an aspiring racer on a budget to do? John Lexington, KY
