I am hoping to pick up my first road bike since high school this weekend. It has a Mavvic Askium Race Black wheel set. Being that it is a new bike and from an LBS who seems to be willing to work with me, I think I could make a change if necessary. I'm not looking for a performance upgrade, but strength and reliability...if I have to. If the Askiums are ok, I'd prefer not to spend more money unless for a few bucks there is a significantly better wheel set I should be looking at for someone my size.
