Subject: [CR]Classic Wheels slower or substantially slower

Without going delving into this controversial subject in too deeply I do not consider anyone can with hand on heart really say which is the correct answer. Whether it be old cane ,steel or new carbon rims ,single, doubled butted or bladed spokes, quality of large flanged or small flange hubs ,sealed or otherwise, types of tyres , road surface conditions and terrain and quality of wheel building ,these should all be taken into consideration when trying to answer the question. To my way of thinking no one individual has a true answer , only by their own experiences can anyone at least try to judge which could be the solution.But other than that I suggest we will never know and I'm sure in the end , we will all agree to differ !

Safe riding whether fast or slow.
