|Help I Need Wheel Advice!||Indurain 03|

|I recently bought a new Campagnolo Scirocco wheelset. Shortly after I began riding with them, the front wheel was destroyed in a crash. My dilemma is this. A new front is approximately $150. I have the oppurtunity to buy a Mavic Helium wheelset for this price or perhaps a bit less. I think you would agree that the Helium is probably a better wheelset. Should I just go ahead and buy the Scirocco front, or buy the Heliums? How do you think A celeste Bianchi would go with the Heliums reddish color?
Thanks for your input.

|I bought a pair of Heliums a few years back and sold them a month later. They flexed too much and caused brake rub when I stood up and pedaled. I used a couple other wheelsets on the same frame and never had a problem.
