    For what type of bike? That's considerably more expensive than the custom handbuilt DT Swiss wheels I just had built for my hybrid. Very, very pretty but racebike-oriented and unlikely to hold up under heavy use.

    I have set of 2007 Mavic Ksyrium ES wheels that I used for racing, they're bullet-proof. Even with hopping off of curbs and bad roads, ride the he!! of Ksyrium line with confidence!

    I've got about 6000 miles on a pair and like them a great deal. It's stiff, relatively light and I've not problems with it at all. In terms of better wheels for the money, I think that depends on what better means to you.

    Klein frames have a reputation for being a bit on the stiff side and Krysiums are not the most resilient of wheels. For me the combination of the two "Might" make for a harsh ride.

    How do the Ksyriums compare to the Aksiums? I just bought an Aksium wheelset and I like them a lot. Ksyriums are a better, more expensive set right?

    I have Aksiums and they are a good dependable wheel set. Bit heavier than Krysiums and they hubs look a bit more basic and I dare say the the Krysiums will ride better- but be a bit more "Fragile". I do have a lighter weight set of low spoke count wheels in Shimano Ultegras and they ride fine on the Lightweight aluminium framed bike I have but are too stiff-so are the Aksiums- on the Giant TCR-C.
