I am looking for some carbon clincher wheels with alu braking surface (I now ride Campagnolo Shamal Ultra's which I love, but I'd like to have a carbon wheel as well for the flat rides here in Holland).
I basically, narrowed my search down to:
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 C50 which I now can buy at around EUR 999.
Campagnolo Bullet 50 Ultra Wheels which are around EUR 929.
The weight of the Campa wheel is 1590 grams, which compares to the Shimano's at around 1656 grams (> 60 grams heavier).
(Looks for the Shimano are, IMHO, better)
What would you recommend ? Or does someone has experience with both of them ?
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

Not sure if you can take the stickers off, if not I would definitely go with the original respondent's suggestion to match your gears. If you can remove the stickers it's less of an issue and I would just go with the one you think looks best, or whichever you can get cheapest.
Actually that's not quite right as there is one difference that's worth bearing in mind and that's freehub compatibility (both across Shim/SRAM/Campag and 10 and 11 speed)
In this regard Campagnolo are superior. And for brand reasons Fulcrum Red Wind are the best of the three options ... so I'd go with those.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!

My understanding is that, at least in the US, they still need to honor the warranty as long as it's not related to your modification.
