So I've decided to get a new wheel set for no particular reason other than my sheer enjoyment. ;)

Regular use: daily training rides, weekend centuries. I do not intentionally ride in the rain, I do ride year around when the weather cooperates.
Terrain: all my weekend rides center around climbing, and I do my best to hold my own in the flats. I make all my rides with the intent to do as much climbing as I can. (My training is centered around sustained power, and flats)

Intended future use:
Ganfondo, and sportive.

Current set: carbon clinchers with carbon braking surfaces. DA hubs.

The rider:
61kg

My budget is under $2000 with tires and currently considering the following:
DA 7900 C35 tubulars w/tires = $1600
Mavic Ksyrium SLR (comes with tires) = $1545
Reynolds Assult 46mm, w/tires = $1700

The Reynolds are a little larger in profile than I would prefer, I want to stay I'm the 32-38mm range.

Any suggestions?

What are you doing with the old set? Selling them? I'm interested in the front if you are going to split em
