    New Wheel Recommendation for Cannondale Super Six EVO

    I am about to purchase a new Super Six EVO and will be upgrading the wheels that come with the bike. I am a petite women with a 48 frame. I've been riding with Ksyrium SLs and was going to buy a new set for the bike but thought that I might want to get something a little better.

    The Mavic R-sys was recommended but the reviews are not that promising. They are noted as good for climbing (which is a good thing) but slow on the flats (not so good). There have also been some mechanical concerns.

    Any recommendation for a solid, excellent performing clincher? I'd like a wheelset that is great for climbing and great on the flats.

    The Ksyrium SLs have served me well so if all else fails, I'll stick with a good thing.

    A Light rim DB Spokes, and a quality hub, conventionally spoked, say built and serviced Locally,
    in consideration?

    Core investment, a Top shelf hub, like Chris Kings? .. light rims, many.. say Mavic Open Pro, or one of DT's?

    So which EVO are you buying and what don't you like about the stock wheelset? Depending on the frame model, ENVE, Shimano or Mavic wheelsets are already standard equipment in Canada.
