A Lightweight Standard Rear Wheel

Lightweight Standard (front)

My Lightweight Obermayer rear wheel was trashed by a nasty sharp road pavement cut; it is in for repair/replacement thanks to the optional Lightweight ServiceUp plan I originally purchased (+10% over the wheel price, as a form of insurance).

At the time, I thought that +10% for a wheel replacement guarantee sounded like a good value and now I am certain!

Why the 'Standard' ?

I’ve been wanting another rear wheel for almost a year now, because it can take 2-5 days for my LBS to get a new tire glued on when needed. And I don’t know how long it will take to get my Obermayer rear replaced.

I considered getting an Obermayer rear, but it is much more expensive, and under normal conditions the Obermayer is always ready to ride, so I decided to get the slightly sturdier and heavier Standard, 20 spokes. There is a 24 spoke version, but it is too stiff for the ride quality I want.

Compared to the Obermayer, the Standard rear wheel is a bit stiffer and thus has less compliance over rough stuff, but it is also stiffer under hard effort, so it is nice to alternative that I will probably ride a lot.

I see little reason for the 'Standard' in front because the Obermayer and VR8 serve me ideally there, so I went with just the rear wheel alone.
