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.

In the it should possible to exactly what get when spend $800 a set the hyped-up performance wheels.  we first to investigate I approach wheel selection/evaluation The first in choosing optimum wheel in defining optimization/evaluation function.  function is on the design variables price, performance, durability. I that there three different of bicycle consumers that the following values for above evaluation Performance based = 0.05, = 0.05, = 0.9) based (x

= 0.45, = 0.45, = 0.1) design variables equal (x 0.33, y 0.33, z 0.33) Essentially, based consumers care how the wheel or whether is durable, the price/durability doesn’t really too much performance.


  I give a wheel rating a scale 1 to “D’s” based the even rating function; an eye for the and “Durable” if you into this of wheel .
