Having another argy bargy with my friends on Wheel Ranking?

Which standard, not custom mfg is "Best" overall for their mid-range wheels costing around $1,000 to $1500?

Please vote in the poll? There is a beer at stake :)

Campagnolo Shamal or Fulcrum Racing Zero.

lots of things come into play. can't really say what's best. rider weight, bike, road conditions, etc. all play a part.

Yeah, he probably could've included Fulcrum on there. Might be looking at Shimano compatibility - hence excluding Campagnolo - with the DA/Ultegra as his first choice. In my opinion, Fulcrum Racing Zeroes would still come in second place to the Dura Ace line's fantastic blend of strength, durability, stiffness, and light weight.

Four votes for Zipp so far but they only make one set of wheels (aluminum) in the price range.

Exactly, "BEST" is a just a hollow phrase with no meaning. For any value, such a thing needs reference.

Using Shamal Ultras and very satisfied. Stiff, very light (actual weight is 1400 gm), wonderfull hubs, and maintence free...

I rode them in different weather, and really no problems at all...
