Is a dangerous thing to say to someone who sells wheels! Nonetheless, we got exactly that request yesterday. It was in regard to buying some of the RFSC 50s we are closing out (and are nearly out of). The request inspired me to answer in the "long form, here's really what I think wheels can and can't do for you" manner. Since the prospective buyer is someone I know and have ridden with (and who owns a set of FSWs for each of his two bikes), there was some inside baseball in my answer, so I present here a slightly modified version to suit the broad audience.
