Experience with this wheelset?

Its what's going to show up on my Cannondale R700F.

Hubs: Cannondale Wind
Spokes: DT Swiss Stainless
Rims: Mavic CXP22, 32 hole
Tire: Hutchinson Fusion Foldable

Its an interesting mish-mash of parts not exactly what you'd expect on a 105/ultegra mix bike so I'm wondering if I should just dump them while the bike's on order and pick up a different set from Bontrager, Mavic, or Easton...

Application: using the bike for spring / summer / fall club rides and centuries, maybe a tri or two next year.

Sounds good to me aside from the off-brand hubs. 32 spokes is good, and I'd prefer this to some of the boutique wheels you mention.

Normal spokes that are easily replacable and a basic Mavic rim are always a good combo in my book, too. Nothing like having to wait a week to get a bladed spoke shipped from Japan or wherever.
