I ordered the Mavic 823s with Hope hubs. To surprise me more when I verified the rear wheel, it came with the brand new Hope hub with the new 40T racket! You guys rock!

After some very helpful consultation, I ordered H Plus Son Archetypes with White Industry Hubs in with 24/2x and 28/3x lacing of sapim spokes. This is the third wheelset I have had on my Carrera Nitro. The first, Campy Scirocco's, were smooth but the G3 lacing lacked durability, and I blew many spokes. Switched for Reynolds Solitude, which were noisy and also blew spokes. After riding the H Pus Son wheels about 1200 miles, I am confident that these wheels are the best investment I have made on my bike. They are solid, smooth, quiet, and fast. Although I hate the cliche, these wheels have made a huge difference in my cornering, descending, and overall happiness on my bike. I don't race and I am not a tech wheenie--I just ride to be outside and under my own power. I am 5'11'', ride between 200 and 215. This build is bombproof.
