My choice would be Campagnolo Zonda Clincher from Wiggle @ £263.77.
What would your choice be?

    What kind of riding do you want them for and how much do you weigh?

    The wheelset is not for me, just looking for opinions.

    Ok, lets look at it a different way- what will the person riding them use them for and how much do they weigh? Its impossible to answer this kind of question with no facts.

    OK, lets say 75kg and for recreational riding and the odd sportive, flat to hilly terrain no mountains.

    Sounds suitable for the zondas then or a set of archetypes and miche hubs laced 24/28.

    I am really quite sold on wider (23mm) rims. Therefore I'd be going for the H Plus Son Archetype build for that budget.
