If you are Campag then these are a bargain (their Shimano range is £40 more)

If Shimano, then Merlin are doing the Aksiums for sub £140 I think

Thanks for all of the advice. Went for Fulcrum Racing 5 in the end and just finished sorting my winter bike this afternoon. See pic: http://instagr.am/p/Rc8cA0iHRi/

Always used to use handbuilts in the past- there was no choice at one time, as Factory wheels hadn't been invented.

But someone please tell me if I can get a decent pair of handbuilts for the same money which are as light,stiff,aerodynamic and durable as a pair of Fulcrum 5's.

I didn't think I could.

So I too bought the Fulcrums.

For anyone else, I had the same decision yesterday, nearly went for fulcrum 5's/105 open pros, but went for fulcrum racing 7 cx due to the additional seals on the hubs to keep the crap out. Also, if they're good enough for cx, they're good enough for winter trainers
