    Gonna treat my self to some new hoops.

    The shortlist is as follows -

    Kysrium ES's.

    Campag Shamal's.

    Fulcrum 1's.

    Fulcrum 0's.

    Despite the fact that they're GOLD, weight wise, and, from what I can gather, performance wise, the Shamal's have nudged ahead in my mind at the moment, until I get up, make a coffee, sit down only to find that now, the F-0's perfectly match my colour scheme etc etc... basically I can't decide. I've only ridden F-1's from this list, and they were excellent., but I hear that the ES's are a great balance between weight, stiffness and reliability.

    Any advice appreciated - I don't think I can go too far wrong with any of these, but thought I'd throw it out there.

    Cheers.

    Fulcrom 0's are seriously sexy.

    Kysrium ES would be my choice though - I'm a big mavic fan.

    In a few week the Mavic RSys wheelset will come on the market...

    Well, it's too late now. I went for Shamal's. I was a little concerned about the bling factor, but the bike red/black, so they look the part.

    Took them out for the first time this wknd, and the difference was quite amazing, especially when the Zondas I had on are not exactly a tonne each.

    i've just looked in cycling weekly, they didn't a recent speed test on loads of wheels, and the Shamal's came out on top of Fulrcum 0's and the ES, so it looks like you made a good choice mate.

    the fastest wheels they tested were:

    Clinchers: Campag Neutron (Shamal's being 2nd fastest)
    Tubular: Reynolds DV-UL.

    For 2008 the Shamals will also be available in silver.

    I think they'll be in black as well?

    I could've waited, but part of the point was that they were cheap as the 08's were due out soon.
