I'd like to upgrade my '09 Fuji Team Pro from the stock Mavic Aksium Race wheelset it came with. I live in the Seattle area so pretty much any http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/338700C Bike Front Wheel direction I go there are hills. I'm 31 y/o, 5'8", 143lbs.
I don't race but am considering it. I do mainly solo training but also some fast and/or hilly group rides. To me, fast groups are anything 20+mph. I'm working on getting faster but can't hold 25mph for 38MM Wheelset very long... yet
I would like to use this wheelset as my only set of wheels. I'd like it to be a good all-around set; provide some aero advantages http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/326 26er Carbon Fiber Frame while still being good for climbing. If/when I start racing, these are the wheels I'll use. I understand that very deep profile rims http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/323 are heavier and can be affected much more by crosswinds so they're not so good for climbing. I'm just not sure when it is that a rim is too deep and is no longer http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/336 27.5er MTB Tubeless Clincher good for climbing. I'm looking for one that is good at both (I understand that a jack-of-all trades wheelset will be the master of none).
I'm considering Reynolds Attack and Assault wheelsets. If there are other wheelsets of similar quality/price that would work better for this purpose, http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/338 I'm open to suggestions.
