I got a couple of bottles of the beads when I ordered my Alpina wheels, they came free with the order. I debated back and forth whether to use them or lead weight. I opted for lead weight.
It's been about 6 years now since I considered this. By now I would expect that you wouldn't even be able to purchase lead weights as the beads would have taken over our lives, yet this is the first thread I've read in 6 years asking about them.
I know hundreds of other riders, none of them ever ask about the difference between the beads or lead weights as nobody I know bothers with the beads.
