    Here we go, wheels.

    Well I've been riding for my CAAD for over a year now, all stock aside from new chain, cassette, stem and tires. Now I have the upgrade bug really bad. I do the occasional faster group ride but ride mostly solo. More flat than hilly riding but I do occasionally go to the white mtns for some good climbing, and I'd maybe like to try racing this up coming season. I'm looking for an all around wheel ( isn't everyone? ) I've been eyeing the dura ace c35s, lightish, with some aero benefits, I've seen some reynolds assaults not terribly heavy and a bit more aero. I'd preferably like to spend about a grand and have seen deals on both in that range, tho I suppose I'd be willing to up my budget for something if it seemed like a great fit. What would you do?

    The DA C35s are a very reasonable choice IMO. If you want a stock item, no muss, no fuss, you can't do much better for the money.

    Yep, you can't lose with the DA 35. I've also never heard or read anything negative about the Reynolds too. Either is a good choice.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Well alright then, I'll just bide my time until I can find a decent deal on either of those!
