Apologies, but I recent convert to lighter wheels as in the past I always thought they didn't make much difference. After trying some of my mates Planet X's I'm a convert.
I've got around £500 to spend and am after wheels that will suit TT, Tri and climbing.
Is there such a wheel set for that price.
Mighty tempted by the Campag Bullet 50's though.

    had the same question last year and did what Ivan above suggested, bought a second hand pair of FFWWD carbon tubular wheelset, the F4R with 38mm deep rims with the DT240 hubs for £550 on ebay. (Well over £1k brand new) There were advertised as lightly raced and have to say they were mint. Had them serviced at the lbs just to be sure and they handed them back to me without charging saying they are like new.

    Would recomend having a look down this route.
