Ok, you have more money than sense and you are out to buy an outrageous wheelset for your new outrageous bike. Will it be Campy Hyperon, Zipps, Lews, Kysriums...

I like those ksyriums. But that's just me.
the '03 Boras, or the Zipp 303 Z3s. more likely both. nmweiwentg

I've have many sets of "fast" wheels. The best wheels are the ones that work every time, feel solid, with good braking surface, and require little maintenance or worry. The exotic light/aero stuff doesn't really help much with speed.

Ksyriums or Nucleons are semi-exotic (in construction, not rarity), but are rock solid. I'd stick with them. (I just hate myself for saying this, after having spent maybe 5 grand on wheels, but it's the god-awful truth.)

I've read a number of reviews in a few different places and I think I'm going to my favorite proshop and buy a pair of Kysiriums from Ben at Chicagoland.
