Wheels around £200

Can anyone give me some advice on wheels? My bike is a Trek 1400, about 8 years old which came with Bontrager Race Lites, which I've never had an issue with but are on their way out now.

I commute about 20 miles a day, but ride it pretty hard treating it like a 10 mile TT each way, and love the riding. I also ride some longer rides and sportives.

I'd like a decent replacement but can't afford much more than £200. Obviously I need something pretty durable, but I don't want to sacrifice speed and enjoyment for the sake of a big chunky wheel that'll last another decade.

I've looked at Mavic aksiums, but they seem to be heavier than the wheels I have at the moment, which puts me off.

Any thoughts on these http://www.wiggle.co.uk/fulcrum-racing- ... lset-2013/

or these http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/road-t ... himwhfr615

as alternatives, or any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Tom
