Williams seems like such a great value. I too have looked at the 19's and they seem to be a good wheel.

I'm studying the HED's lightweight alloy wheel right now to go on one of my "climbing" bikes.
One of our track sprinters has Williams 19 and gave me a positive review. He is about 185 and a powerful cyclist. This is for his road bike. I would talk with Keith Williams about the 19 versus the 30 vis a vis weight limitations and your style of riding and roads.

I considered the 19s but I wanted the more aero wheels. Since my climbing is improving, I ride faster uphill. Heavier aero wheels will be faster uphill than lighter less aero wheels and I will get the benefit of less aero drag under all riding conditions.

I have two sets of HED trispoke carbon tubular wheels. They are great wheels and scary fast. I do not think you can go wrong with HED.
