    AM classic,reynolds alta, velomax temptest II

    Ok, thoughts on these 3 wheelsets:

    American Classic 420
    Reynolds Alta
    Velomax tempest II

    I've read some sketchy reports on the AC 420's largely relating to substandard hubs and out of balance wheels.

    I have not read anything on the altas and have read good things about the Tempest II's

    I'm looking for a good clincher race wheel, light, stiff and durable, with some moderate aero advantage. I don't plan on riding these for everyday.

    Any other suggestions on wheelsets would be welcomed.

    Also, what is the general consensus on the tufo tubular clincher tires?? seem like a good concept.

    Cheers

    Well I'll be finding out about the Alta's in couple of weeks as I just ordered a set.
