    sorry, the ex1750's are around œ450 - œ500 so i wouldn't pay much more

    œ450-œ500 is a huge amount to pay for wheels IMO - i spent less on my whole bike! :o
    having said thatr, my bike is pretty crap atm

    Chances are you wont need to spend that much on wheels to cope with your riding then. Unless your the sort of guy that 'needs' a low weight wheel.

    yeah seems alot,but im just looking for ideas,if someone could recommend a light strong and cheapish wheelset then i'd be a happy camper,was also looking at the mavic crossmax sx disc
