    Mavic Reflex rims.

    hi. I am starting to ride cyclecross, and want to run tubular.

    I have these to suggestions to a wheel setup.

    Mavic Reflec CD, Chris King Classic cross hubs.

    Or Easton EA70X.

    Which would be the best all-round wheelset?
    Thanks....

    I'd go with the Mavic rims, but I'd consider lacing them to a high-quality loose-ball hub, like an Ultegra or Dura-Ace. That way, you don't need to take them to the LBS when the bearings get a bit crunchy - and in CX, they certainly will.

    I got Reflex rims with DuraAce hub, I wouldn't change that configuration. I'm thinking to buy the 2nd wheelset

    I work in a bike shop, so no problem with the service.
    What i've heard the Chris King hubs, are bomb proof.
