I'm considering upgrading to the American Classic TCX disc. I currently have a gt grade tiagra and I ride a mix of road/gravel/occasional tame single track. I weigh around 230. The reviews seem to be good but I thought I'd post here to see what people think. Thanks in advance

I've been riding the TCX's pretty hard for well over a year with no problems. This past summer I mostly used them w/ WTB Riddler 45's. Lots of big rides with high speed descending on some pretty bad dirt/rocky roads. They are still holding up well and I definitely recommend them. Good Luck!

thanks for your input! Since this post I ended up with a set of DT Swiss R24s.  My budget changed a little bit and I needed some wheels.  Your review is similar to others I have read, AC wheels are top notch.   Next time.

Have the TCX's been discontinued?

I almost went with the TCX but was talked out of them... they're pretty heavy (strong, but heavy).  I went with the Race 29 and MAN they're nice.  I think the price has come down since I bought them too.

Strong is why I went with them. Loaded up with gear etc. weight limit is 285lbs too. Might be a good touring set as well. These will be a good all around set.. For whatever reasons I go thru wheels quickly about a year and a half and something gives. I am not a curb jumper either.

I considered the race set about 500 grams lighter, but I went with durability, instead. That is my expectation anyway. They arrive in a few days so I will post a user review when they do.

The 20% off is nice too.
