Wheels?????litespeedcat

I am thinking of getting a pair of Mavic cosmic carbone's or a pair of Zipp 404's. Both clincher. I really think the 2002 Zipps look great and the hubs sound like they are much improved from the past. My only fear is that the Zipps are too light...I have a set of Mavic cosmic elites that maintain speed in the flats quite easily and they have held up quite well with little attention. What is your take on which are the best for the money? Which is the most durable and all around best wheel(irrespective of price?

Thanks in advance

I would suggest the Zipp 404's. I think they give you more wheel for your money. If you are concerned about durability you could get them in the Clydesdale version. 24 spoke front and 28 rear. If want a pair let me know, I can get them for you.
