About a year ago, I was looking to buy a set of Velocity wheels and was in contact with a wheelbuilder that was recommended to me here on the forum. I've since lost his contact info and would like to get in touch with him for a wheelbuild. Can anyone provide some advice for a reasonably priced $200-$300 + set of wheels? No deep aero...just a good set of Velocity or Mavic wheels. Seems like his hop was in florida, not sure though?

Joe Young and Peter White are a couple of the very best:

Think this is the guy you're looking for in Florida. Mike Garcia

Wino, yep thats him....Mike Garcia. Thanks for the link as I couldn't find him otherwise. I ride about 2,000 miles a year....not competitive, just enjoy the excercise and training that cycling offers. Any suggestions on a better wheel than the Open Pro? Maybe Velocity Aero? I really just want to find a good & efficient, durable wheel for the country/chip seal/asphalt roads that I do my riding on.
All, Thanks for the feedback.
