    New carbon tubulars - Boyd or Psimet?

    I'm getting a new set of carbon tubulars for racing next season. I'm leaning toward the Boyd 24/28 - 44mm deep models for 1320 dollars or set from Psimet with White Industries T11 hubs on a 38 mm rim for a little more for the nicer hub. I've never used either model so I have no idea what to expect. I think I like the 44 mm depth of the Boyd a little better. I'm a 180 lb. Cat 3 if it makes difference. I have a set of Dt 240's laced to a Hed Belgium with 32 DT comp spokes on each wheel. They are great wheels but looking for something a touch faster for racing. Let me know any thoughts you have. I ran 34 fango's all year and am leaning toward a 33 Fango front with 33 Griffo rear for next year for most races.

    Psimet.

    Ive purchased wheels from him and its been a positive experience. I hope to have a set of the cyclocross specific carbon tubs at some point.

    Do you think it is worth upgrading the hubs to DT 240's or White Industries as opposed to his in house hub? It adds about 250 dollars to the cost of the wheelset to upgrade the hubs.

    thats a good question. For me, I would do the 'in house' hubs. I trust Rob's products and recommendations.
