looking for something light but strong as i'm not the lightest of riders, so what do you recommend?
Fulcrum Racing 3s. They're great. Fairly light (about 1630g/pair), but they're massively stiff, the stiffest wheels I've ever ridden. I'm 105kg and I can't get them to touch the brake blocks even when I'm yomping up the steep hills of Bath. One of the reasons they're so stiff is that the internal wall isn't drilled, so to change a spoke you need to drag the nipple round the rim with a magnet that they supply.
blimey, just found this and i'm still looking for these wheels
I'm not 105kg any more
I can also recommend Pro Lite Braccianos, which are lighter and still nice and stiff, and a bunch cheaper especially at CRC
