    merlin are doing the ksyrium elites (2011) for 386£ if you register as a VIP...

    I reckon that's a pretty good deal. But I'm biased as I've just bought them & think they're great. Raced on them & feel good, but strong enough to train/use everyday on.

    little bit over budget, but that's a great price for a rrp 500 quid wheelset!

    shop around and you could pick up a set of shimano RS80 for that money, or a set of Pro Lite Bracciano's can be had for less than £300. i have the rs80 and they are brill, light and reasonably still, and easily maintained
