    Just remember that Fulcrum 7's are a 100 pounds or so wheelset. So you'll need to spend a fair bit to get something that justifies to cost.

    I'm also impressed with Zondas, a very good wheel for the money, I have a pair on my race bike.

    And yes, you can get them with a Shimano freehub.

    Hypocrisy is only a bad thing in other people.

    Haven't ridden them but at £280(ish) there's Reynolds Solitude.

    Only mentioned them as I saw Epic are offering them on their SE version of the Izoard in lieu of Fulcrum 3's if you so wish.

    If I didn't already own a set of semi-aeros I'd be interested myself (the Reynolds are quoted at 300g lighter than mine :roll:).

    Fulcrum Racing 1, if you cannot stretch that far get a pair of racing 3's.

    is this the best price for them - seems to be....?

    Allegedly my Felt has Shimano WH-R500 wheels fitted, but my rims are all black, and on the brochure pictures of the bike, and wheels googled seperately, it clearly shows 'Shimano' round the edge, where it isn't black.

    Does that mean I have different wheels, and how would I find out what make/model they are, would it say inside the rim maybe, under the tyre?
    I haven't actually looked in detail, so it may be it is blatant, but I certainly never noticed any identification whilst cleaning the bike, and only now when I think about maybe upgrading do I need to find out, as otherwise it might be downgrading!
