Flo Cycling – Flo 60

Company Flo Cycling
Product Flo 60
WebSite http://www.flocycling.com/wheels_front_flo_60.php
Details An extremely affordable wheelset (less than $1,000) that is as aerodynamic as sets 3 times its price.
Likes Price! 60mm depth and 24mm width combined with a toroidal shape creates an extremely fast wheel. Aluminum brake track lets you stop in a hurry.
Dislikes Not light by any means (almost 2,000g) and the spoke holes create a howling at speed that takes a bit to become accustomed to.
