I need a really cheap wheelset to hold me over for a few weeks. I've seen the following in the $150 range per set:
Mavic Aksium
FSA RD-80

For the money, is there anything wrong with them? I know they are heavy, although I think the FSA's aren't way over-weight..

I got a pair of Aksiums as a short-notice replacement wheelset a couple of months back. They've exceeded my expectations, coping fine with a 200k Audax overnight sodden audax ride, as well as more mundane daily commuting over potholed roads and the occasional fireroad. They weigh a bit, but they're nice and solid.
