I'm in the market for a good set of racing wheels (tubulars). I've narrowed it down to these 2. The weight is close enough between both so I'm looking for your comments or recommendations.

Thanks.

I've felt really, really smooth Zipp hubs, however I'm not happy with my AC Hubs.
From what I've read Zipp have better customer service.

I'd go the Zipps

The AC carbon wheels use Zipp rims, so this may help with your decision. The Zipp hubs are nicely made, but the ceramic bearing option is a load of you know what.

Although you seem to want either American Classic's or Zipp's; I think you might have overlooked Corima.

The Medium and Aero wheels have definitely caught my attention - Their prices are very good, and so is the design, not to mention the weight.

Corima's website is very thorough, and also includes a little direct online store function!

Corima with Zipp hubs, I think the best, Spada slightly lighter.

Sooner or later, you're going to need service on carbon wheels. If you live in North America stick with Zipp-their service is the best.
