BRYSON AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT WHEEL CHOICE FOR LEADVILLE A FEW YEARS AGO. Shocking, I know. Because what self-respecting cyclist would ever talk about wheel choice? Uh...
(We know Diesel, get on with the story.)
Anyway, there we were talking about wheels choice... mind you, he's won Leadville twice, is a national champ in MTB Marathon, etc...
I looking at getting some new wheels for PbVille. What are you running?
ENVEs, even though ENVEs are a little heavier.
Why run 'em?
Because I trust them.
Which reminds me of my own intro to ENVEs. I was running brand X, and they kept warping and breaking. Finally my very awesome local bike shop got the money back from brand X and hooked me up with my first set of ENVEs.
Road wheels, 3.4s.
Rode 'em 3 years, never trued 'em. Ever.
#3 Reason not to purchase ENVEs is the price. Which is why I was on Brand X to begin with. ENVEs will cost you an arm and a leg, but in the end I can honestly say the are veryvery cost effective.
You'd think, of course, if you're gonna pay that much then you oughta be able to get them quickly.
#2 Reason not to purchase ENVEs is you have to wait. It's probably a bad analogy, but you know how you can get a BigMac quicker than Sagan can snag a sprint? Well, ordering ENVEs is more like waiting for a juicy steak at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
Totally worth it.
I realize, I kinda left the Bryson story hanging... didn't connect the dots.
Here you go.
#1 Reason not to purchase ENVEs is there will be no excuse for not getting it done. By it I mean, your PR/Win/KOM thingy you're chasing. A lot of people like to have excuses of why things didn't work out. So, if you're one of those types you don't get ENVEs.
They are reliable.
If you can handle not being able to blame your wheels for poor performance...
If you're okay waiting many weeks for perfection...
If you've got a few extra bucks...
We are an ENVE dealer, and I'd love to hook you up with just the right set for your bike...
