The Ultegra/Mavic rim wheel set up is a favourite for a good strong wheel by most Handbuilt wheel specialist's. It is a combination that I can recommend- but only if they are handbuilt.
And machine built wheel- and I mean any- will not be as good as a handbuilt wheel.
Have I put it across yet?
Handbuilt for this hub/wheel combo will give you a wheel that will last a lifetime. All you have to do is find a good wheel builder and I am too far away to recommend one for you.
Perhaps others can recommend one?
