Ritchey DS Comp Road Wheel - Veloce Compatible?

Hey, all -

Still working on outfitting the wife's Pinnarello. Looking at decent (read: cheap, but not crappy) wheels. Nashbar has these Ritchey DS Comp road wheels that, superficially, look to fit the bill. We're going with 2007 Veloce components. Anyone know if the 10 speed cassette will work on this wheel? If not, anyone have suggestions for another wheelset for $200US or less?

Thanks!
Scott

Those Ritchey wheelsets are all Shimano compatible. Of course, you can run a Shimano cassette and a Jtek gizmo to work with your Veloce shifter.

For a low-end pre-built Campy-compatible wheelsets, you can go with Mavic Aksiums, Fulcrum Racing 7s, or Campy Ventos. You could also spend a bit more and have some wheels handbuilt with nice rims laced to Veloce hubs; I rode a set of MA3s with Veloce hubs, and they were fantastic.

Thanks, guys.

Michael, we were already looking at the Aksiums; I'll look into the others. BTW, I was at Bicycle Therapy on South yesterday. Bought myself a bike.

Thanks for the help!

I have a set of Aksiums that came stock on my bike; they're pigs, but they're just fine for my purposes (training, no racing to speak of). They'd be a great choice. The major difference between those and the others is that the Fulcrum uses 2:1 lacing on the back wheel, so the drive side has 2 spokes for every 1 on the non-drive side, and the Campy uses the very cool-looking but questionably useful G3 spoking pattern.

And hey, enjoy the new ride. I used to use Bike Therapy, but I've begun using Bicycle Revolutions on 4th Street just south of Bainbridge. Bryan, the owner, is a former mechanic at Bike Therapy, and is just super cool. I cannot recommend him highly enough for mechanic work and wheelbuilding.

ADDED: enjoy the Ventos!
