B43 to ......????

Hey guys i currently run a b43 wheeleset with origin hubs... there are many heavy vs light wheelset debates but could u guys give me some advice on
1. upgrading to mavic open pro wheelset?
2. keep b43 front and get mavic open pro on the rear?
3. or keep both b43s and just HTFU.

Also, would upgrading to a lighter wheelset have noticeable and worthy performance differences?
thanks guys

Yes you will notice the difference, it will accellerate much quicker with light rims

Just get a light set and switch between them. B43 for style and open pro for long hilly rides.

You're going to lace them up yourself or by a wheel builder.

Rim:

Hubs:

You will have a weird combinations of spoke count but it will be a very solid combo, and expensive.

Or you could just pick up a set of wheels from VeloMine.
