Sorry to bring up an old question, but I need some wheels for racing and training, and have been looking around a lot, especially at the benifites of aero vs. light. I work at a bike shop, and have been told by various people there, depending on their stance on aero vs light, CXP33 or open pros. I said why not ksyriums, they said poor college kid wants to buy $150 replacement rims when he crashes? I said no. So the question is CXP33 vs open pros. And if I go Cxp33, should I then also get bladed spokes? And hubs: DA or King? Any response would be apreciated.
