I'm looking at replacing my black wheelsets with white ones, similar to below image.

i only know alexrims and bontrager has them. does anyone know of any other brand, mid level like bontrager race or race lites?

Soul also has a variety of white wheels. The reviews appear to be good.

There are many types of racing cyclists. There is the sprinter, the rouleur, the stagiaire, the danser, the descender.... sadly, I'm a mediocre. :-(

Try Greg Ryan of Two Wheel Enterprises (TWE) in Sydney. He will custom build to any spec- any budget - comes highly recommended from me and many others.

Are those weights correct? 2650gm for the set??? I'm no expert, but even I know that's MASSIVE!

@ozdavo: yeah i think they're really heavy... plus the seller responded confirming that it's not bladed spokes. must be some budget wheelset with heavy compos.

@drmutley: i din't know ksyriums came in white... they look nice.

They came on a new bike two months ago, and have been ridden once.... But sit in the corner unused (with 5 other wheelsets) so if ur interested google what they are new and make me a secondhand offer (if that helps u out)....

I love my white DT-Swiss Tricons. 10K and still look new (ish). Bulletproof and not too heavy.
