I train daily on my Zipp 280's laced to AC hubs. I have a 28 rear and a 24 front. Laced with Sapim spokes. I weigh 152 lbs. and rode these wheels on every training ride I did last year......thousands of miles and only had to true the rear once!!! I would say great wheels and at 1,097 grams!!!!

Yup, Lightweights are the best you can get, buy them!

Ksyriums are great wheels, got 2 punctures and was forced to ride home on a flat rear tyre. I went cautiously for 6 mile journey and the wheel was sitll fine, in perfect condition!

I agree with you for the Lightweight but they are more expensive than the Zipp ! And I don't have enough money to buy them !

Reynolds wheels that someone tells me about are also too expensive for me.

I probably go for Zipp 303, 24/28 Sapim CX Ray spokes (or 28/32 because the rim is available in 32 holes) and Satellite hubs. I am not very strong, my races roads are hilly, and I think these wheels will be the most polyvalent.

Thanks for all your comments !

You can buy lightweights through carbonsport. If you want 16 spoke and Campy you might be able to get them in a month. Anything else probably July. Disc wheels take longer. The cost is 2140 Euro, about $2,700 US. You can get a set of Zipp 303 around $1,000 US if you look around. There is a big difference in price here in the US. Who would buy 303s if it would only cost a little more for LW.
