So say you get parts free or at cost. (pretend cost is not an issue, although it always is). Which wheels would you choose, and why? Wheels for rough courses? Wheels for fast courses? Wheels for courses with lots of on bike climbing? Wheels for muddy courses?
I've got a sweet line in on a set of mavic cosmic elite wheels, which seem like a reasonably durable wheel, and the areo profile would help shed mud/snow. I've not got them yet, but am thinking about it. Otherwise I was going to build up a set of ultegra with mavic CXP-33 or whatever. I'm ~ 145 lbs.
Then again, I've seen "pro" bikes with spinergy revX wheels on them. Is it just for looks, or do the spinergys really get raced? Are they tough?
Anyway, just wanted to see what people would build up of they could, and get the thoughts behind it.
