Maybe a little stronger?

I have a Raleigh Passage hybrid with 700cm Weinmann 36h rims, what would be a little stronger without breaking the piggy bank?

Thanks. John

Spin Lite online built me a real nice set of wheels for my recumbent. I'm real happy woth them and I particularly like the sealed bearing hubs. They took my weight into account when determining what to build. Cost; $345.00. Reasonable as far as upscale wheels go. bk

Assuming you mean 700c rims...

They're $50 each, but I can't say enough about my 700c 36h Velocity Deep-V. I would call that "a lot" stronger though. A little stronger would be the Velocity Fusion

Waterrocket, that sound like what I'm looking for, where can they be bought?
