    Which of these two wheelsets?

    Hi guys,
    I'm purchasing a 2004 Redline Conquest Pro and need help deciding between two wheelsets. I'll be using this bike extensively for racing.

    Two wheelsets are:
    1) Mavic Reflex laced to Ultegra hubs w/ DT Swiss spokes
    or
    2) Velomax Sagitta wheels

    The latter came stock on the bike. I've been told that DT Swiss spokes are a pain to true--which would you choose, and why?

    Thanks!

    Errr?!
    I don't know who told you this, but give them a smack upside the head for me please.

    Reflex with ultegra hubs, it's Macis that's why. Are they tubular?

    No, they are clinchers.
