I want a new pair of road wheels and have £400 ish to spend to replace the fairly average ones that came as standard on my road bike. I don't race so don't want light weight above all else, I just want a nice pair of wheels that will last reasonably well and that I won't need to replace in a years time.
My first look suggested either the Planet X carbon jobbies or perhaps some Mavic's of some variety, Ksyrium Equipe S seem about the right level. I've also looked at some Hope Hoops.
Am I on the right lines? I should add they will need to take a Shimano cassette but I would rather not have Shimano wheels as I just don't like cup and cone bearings.
