i've pretty much sorted it down to these two - there are a number of reasons not the least of which is that i'm over the weight limit for most of what's out there (yeah yeah yeah) in this weight range and i don't want to go all the way to lightweights...

...going onto a 2015 emonda slr h1 w/ d/a mechanical - currently still running the stock bontrager alloy clinchers which really aren't bad but it's time to go back to the world of tubulars.

i'm leaning towards the easton wheels but would really love to hear from anyone that has some comparative experience between any of my choices.
thanks,

Have you bought your wheels yet?

I went with the DT Swiss RC 28 db version for my current build. DT hubs have an excellent reputation (plus a multitude of spare parts) and the wheels are very lightweight for carbon disc clinchers.

Easton are obviously excellent carbon fabricators but I don't have a lot of knowledge about the quality of their hubs.
