    Doing some wheel shopping and I like the Zipp 202 and 303 cyclocross. What other wheels should I consider that balance weight and aerodynamics? For now let's not worry about price. I ride a really rough section of road and realize some of these won't hold up so does anyone know of a more durable model that would still be a big aero and weight improvement over my Mavic Classics?

    Okay, I'm sold on the 303 Cyclocross in 28 spoke. Does anyone think there's a rim that better balances weight, stregnth, and aero? I think I want to lace radially in front and 3 cross both sides in the rear with DT's double butted bladed spokes.

    Edge 36 might be something to check into. Perhaps the CX version if you want more strength.

    Never heard of them. I googled Edge 36 wheel bicycle and found nothing.
