Hi, I'm looking to get a new set of wheels for my Specialized Roubaix Road Bike. The current wheels on are mavic open pro rims and unknown hubs. They have no markings on whatsoever.
The wheelsets I have been looking at are the mavic aksium, shimano RS20, shimano RS30, fulcrum 7, campagnolo khamsin and also mavic open pro rims with shimano 105 hubset.
I'm 74kg and use my bike to commute and also training around the saddleworth area and doing the odd sportif. Approx 75-150 miles per week.
I am so unsure as to what is best and to suit.
Brand new, unused Mavic Ksyrium elite wheelset (Not S version)
Cassette & tyres are NOT included.
£350 posted UK
Extra £40 shipped Europe - more internationally.
I'm shopping around for some nice wheels for christmas. I've narrowed it down to:
Mavic Ksyrium Equipe in white (look great)
Quest Keswick in black (bit lighter than the Mavics, these are a re-badge of Pro-Lite Braccianos since Pro-Lites don't seem to be that easy to get hold of but Quest are in the UK and advertising the Keswicks in CW)
Handbuild - I live near Will's Wheels in Stockport, I don't know what they will do for the £260-ish that the other choices cost.

Free, well if your in Bristol and want to pick up..three old 700x23 continental tyres..no good for road use but ideal for turbo trainers. Also an old Mavic MA2 rim, 36h. Got quite a bit of life left but the eyelets are rusty., again good for a turbo wheel if you've got an old 36h hub knocking around.
Going to the tip at the weekend, so be quick.
If your not in Bristol but really really want them ill send at cost.
