Some advice sought, if you please...
I'm looking to upgrade/supplement my race wheels (currently Pacenti SL23s on Chris King hubs and Sapim CX-rays) to something a bit more aero - this year I did struggle a bit to keep the pace on the flats and am not the biggest rider so am looking to find all the help I can get.
All of my other wheels are alloy, and I would like to retain the ability to swap the wheels out without having to change brake blocks (particularly in the case of getting flats in races). I also rate the braking surface of alloy more than carbon.
So I'm looking for a pair of alloy/carbon wheels with a reasonably aero rim (around 40-50mm), that ideally don't weigh much more than c.1600g and are in the £600-800 price bracket. Happy to go with tubs. Any ideas?
Shimano c35s are not rated as being particularly aero, and the c50s are pretty heavy - not to mention expensive.
