With the recent availability of my ENVE 29XCs, the Mandem has received an upgrade.
As expected, they’re snappy, durable, incredibly fast, and awesome looking. These are 32/32 laced to DT240 hubs. I’ll give a durability update in a few months…
As related in my last post, the ENVEs weigh 780/852 grams front and rear, versus 966/1236 grams for the generic aluminum wheels that were previously on the Mandem.
That’s a reduction of 570 grams of rotating mass–1 and 1/4 pounds. A reduction in rotating mass, going to a wheel that is wider, more aerodynamic and stronger. Win, win, win.
I look forward to a lot of miles on the Mandem. I also look forward to one final upgrade. Stay tuned.
