|Which wheelset should I choose?||Heilx|

|I am looking for some wheels for a frame I just bought and I was hoping for some advice. I will be using the bike for training predominantly and the ocassional group ride.
Here are my considerations:
Formula Xero (Supergo)
Velocity Sparticus (Supergo)
I am new to all of this and I am sure this has been covered multiple times, but I would appreciate any help.

|Have you LBS hand-build you a set of wheels. If not the french are the swellest, go cosmos. but Mavic rims on campy/shimano hubs and black spokes may just be what your looking for|

|For the price range you are in, you could get Campy Record or DA hubs with Velocity Aerohead rims from Colorado Cyclist or Excel, and have a better, lighter wheel. Plus, you would have a wheel that any decent bike shop (or you) could repair with out of the box parts.|

|I saw in the CC catalogue they had prebuilt Open Pro rims with DA or Ultegra (or Record/Chorus if you have Campy) at really good prices. The entire wheel set for cheaper than the cost of hubs and rims. I have to agree with Kerry that they are a better lighter wheel. CC supposedly makes really good wheels. And I don't work for them, honest.|

|Ambrosio rims and Record hubs. I like the fact that you can adjust the hubs using only a Allen Key and your fingers without the need to take the wheel off.
Great Design Campy!!!

|The Velocity Sparticus rims are very tempting to me, enough so that I almost wish I needed a new wheel set (I don't). The design is fully user servicable- despite the fancy look, those are normal 14g spokes in normal hub holes with normal nipples. I like the rim, too- its deeper than most other AL aero rims, not signifigantly heavier, and Velocity has a really good repution.
My front wheel will need a new rim soon. I already bought a Ritchey Aero that will fit with my existing hub and spokes, but if I had deeper pockets and was doing more miles, I would build up a low spoke count wheel using a Deep V.
