I’m looking to upgrade my current stock wheelset to something more “raceable”.
There is an incredible amount of choice out there, and some seemingly decent alloy options as well as the ubiquitous carbon.
I’m on a super tight budget so something like a set of Mavic Ellipse alloy wheels would equate to a couple of months saving up. Whereas carbon would involve multiple months’ worth of saving and longing.
A brief bit of background on my riding; I’m a track newbie currently doing SQT’s. I’m aiming to join a track league in the Autumn (need to build up my fitness over the summer months) and I also race the occasional fixed gear crit.
So, is it worth getting something serviceable and quickly or holding out for something more flash?
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
