Thinking about getting some new carbon-wheels, what is there to say about the FSA RD-800, other than what FSA (www.fullspeedahead.com) says?

Looking for sub 1300g carbon tubulars..straight-pull, stiff..

Other than FSA RD-800, I`m thinking about:

Zipp 404
Bontrager x-lite carbon (1360g :( )
Ritchey carbon
tune..
whatever you fine gents may suggest :!:

To make it more complex:

Corima Medium wheelset: 490 + 760 = 1250gram

Corima wheels have good reviews except for the Mediums, you better go fro the Aero or Winiums

Also check out the the Reynolds wheels http://www.reynoldscomposites.com/ These have heavy hubs so if you are willing to change them they can be seriously light. My sources tell me they may be selling rims seperatley by the end of the year.
