    Recommend me some wheels to consider

    Total new build, hydraulic brakes, want some aero, carbon, for daily rides in the fair weather, about 3k miles a year on this bike, I'm 141 lbs -love- to climb, money not a factor, but stupid money is just stupid.

    I have a couple of ideas of DT Swiss, Fulcrum and maybe Industry Nine, but I'm WAY open to suggestions since I know nothing of wheel these days.

    Halp/thanks all.

    You want out-of-the-box, cool custom, or? Enve, Zipp, Bontrager are all great wheels. If it were me I'd build myself something cool w/ WI or CK hubs. Not exactly sure what I'd do for rims...I'd have to think about it. I'd use DT Aerolite spokes for sure. At your weight 18-20 spokes front, 20-24 rear.

    Enve 3.4 wheels are nice light climbing wheels. If you want a deeper aero set Enve has their foundation series 65 wheels that are not too heavy and hard to beat price wise on sale. I have both, happy with them.

    I'm sure CXwrench missed the part about hydraulic (assuming you mean disc) 24 spoke front and rear is the way to go and standard on most factory disc wheels today.

    Take a look at the wheels offered by November Bicycles. They offer a number of Disc wheels with carbon rims. I build my own wheels but, if I were in the market to have some built for me, they would get my $$$.

    Don't plan on building my own, so out of the box options are just fine.

    Yes, I saw it and then forgot it. 24/24 should be good.

    Select all of your own components. Iíve had two sets built from this company and the last ones have been ridden for eight years without needing truing.

    Reynolds BLACKLABEL AERO 46 DB wheelset
    Their Blacklabel models use Industry Nine hubs, Sapim CX-ray spokes
    Use "NACA" aero profile , very stable and fast

    (Note: Reynolds is owned by Hayes since 2018)

    I got my wheelset last year for $1250 shipped (PM me if you want more details)

    i second that. Dave built me a pair of AForce AL33 alloy wheels with WI hubs and itís a brilliant wheelset. So good I sold my Zipp 202s. Not sure why everyone is so big on carbon clinchers, plenty of brilliant aluminum wheels rims out there.

    The wheels I ride are WI/AL33 that I built myself based on the recommendation of Brandon at BHS. Agreed, I have no need for Carbon rims any longer. I had a set of Zipp 303 carbon tubulars built on WI hubs by Ron Ruff and I gave them to a friend a couple of years ago. I donít need $2,500+ wheels any longer.
