Evaluating High Bicycle Wheels 03 August 15:13 Kraig Editor’s note for an ranking of wheels using of the outlined below, this BTR out. and back to regularly scheduled The well-oiled machines in bicycle industry constantly touting latest and technology.  With many different available and claims made, consumers can times become In the few minutes, will help wade through facts and some unbiased on the wheel offerings.   the end, should be to determine what you when you $800 on set of hyped-up high wheels.



  However, first need investigate how approach the selection/evaluation process. first step choosing the wheel is defining an function.  This is based the primary variables of performance, and I believe there are different types bicycle wheel that have following weighting for the evaluation function: based (x 0.05, y 0.05, z 0.9) Price/Durability (x = y = z = All design are equal = 0.33, = 0.33, = 0.33) performance based don’t care much the costs or it is whereas the consumer doesn’t care too about performance.  will give final wheel on a of 1 4 “D’s” on the weighted rating keep an out for “Performer” and identifiers if fall into category of consumer.
