Looking for a wheelset similar to my Neuvation Aero spoke wheels

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Looking for a wheelset similar to my Neuvation Aero spoke wheels

I bought the Neuvation M28 aero wheels a couple of years ago and love them. I am looking to build a bike using a bamboo/aluminum frame from Greenstarbikes and am looking for a similar set (appearance/pricepoint/weight). Any suggestions. They are black with black spokes. No pics to attach right now, on a work computer. Thanks.

Black rims and black spokes? That's gonna be a toughie...

[/sarcasm]

What is it about these wheels you're looking for similarities to?

I thought that was clear with (appearance/pricepoint/weight), but I'll break it down further.

1. appearance - Neugent doesn't sell these specific wheels anymore. I like the bladed spokes, more for looks than anything else

2. weight - I think these wheels were spec'd at +/-1550grams

3. price - i am pretty sure i paid less $260 for this set new

Thanks for editing the OP to include specific model info, and for the spec info here; that lets things get going...

Fulcrum Racing 5 LG can be had from Wiggle for $230.35.

They weigh 95g more net, but have aero spokes.

That might be the ticket. That's crazy they ship to the U.S. for free at that price. I've never ordered from wiggle. Their groupset prices are pretty good too if I decide to go new for that portion of the build.

Bladed spokes like the ones the OP mentioned aren't common anymore.

I also rode Neuvations and I agree that they are awesome. On my other bike, I have Mavic Cosmic Elites (they have bladed spokes) and I really like them. You could probably find them for around $400.
