    Dura Ace 7800 because they are a reasonable compromise between weight, aero, and strength, and I got them for a good price when I put the DA10 groupo on my bike. Before those, I raced on AmClassic 350s, but had reliability problems with a hub and a rim - for some reason they now work fine as training wheels, but the two failures in different races were too much! The Ksyrium SLs are something of a standard race/training wheel - they would be my choice if I didn't have the DAs, and as someone else posted, if I could justify the cost, either Zipp404 or Reynolds Stratus DV carbon tubulars would be the top of my list.

    Just ordered a Dura Ace Six13 and thinking about trading in the Dura Ace wheels for a set of Rolf Elans. What do you think?

    If I had the dough (other than what was spent on the bike :) )...Zipp 404 tubulars

    Question!

    I just purchased brand new Ritchey Z Road WCS DS Wheelset: 1600g for $250. I got it just because it was cheap.

    Do you guys have any comments? Or reputation about the wheelset?
