I agree with Bill.
Wheels are often undervalued on a bicycle. I know what a good wheel can be, and that's why I pay a professional to build a set that "stands" . . . once they leave the builder, they won't need touched as they stay true and round.
I doubt Bicycle Warehouse employs such professionals.
But, that won't help you now puppybagger.
I suggest you find a competent local builder who can go over the wheels, stress relieve them, re-tension, etc, BEFORE you start riding them. That's very important, before !
