Easily the Veloce. More durable.

And what's wrong with normal wheels? They'ree cheaper, lighter, more durable than
not-enough-spokes wheels.

I'd recommend a Veloce sealed hub on a Campagnolo Montreal/Barcelona or a Velocity rim with 32 DB
stainless spokes. If you're a big guy, ditto but 36 spokes.

Staya way from all things Tiagra. If you are goign to go Shimano, go with 105 at the very least.
Ultegra would be a better upgrade, IMO. ANything Mavic is a good wheel choice. Many rave about the
CXP33 rims.

You have not mentioend what you are looking to pay for this bike. Typically, a soild race bike
will run you about $1100.00 hear in Oregon. That is for a Shimano 105 equipped bike with Mavic
Open Pro wheels.

Just my two cents, but my wife has had Tiagra for two years problem free and the change is as crisp
as my Ultegra (maybe criper as I have 12,000 kms on mine and my wife is only at around 2,000).
Perhaps the thing to look for is which levers fit your hand better. Some prefer Campy, some Shimano.

As far as wheels go I have a set of Ultegra 16 spokers and I love em for racing but prefer my 32
spoke ultegra hubed mavic cxp23s for training, touring and general riding. One thing I do notice is
less rigidity in bumpy low turns with the Shimano - but I love em anyway, especially in the sprint.
Not sure if the 540s feel the same or not. Also be aware that the Mavic rims seem to have a more
responsive braking surface - not too many people worry about that in racing but down a long hill it
makes a difference when touring or training. Are you going to use the same wheels for
training/racing? Your decision may well depend on the answer to this.

Veloce with a set of hand built wheels. Campagnolo for convertibility(8s/9s or10s), ease of
maintenance of the levers, cross compatibility, overall duability, price. Hand built wheels for
durability, long term service, etc.
