I'd like to get a new wheelset for my wife's bike:
I had wheels on my Bottecchia that lasted 18 years with no truing necessary, no broken spokes, and no rust. That's what I want, even if I (oops, I mean "she") has to give up a little weight. Rust/corrosion resistance is especially important since we are right by the ocean, and everything either rusts or molds.
I get the impression (probably wrong) that the lighter wheels with fewer spokes are more prone to problems.
She has 700 x 23c tires, and a 6 speed freewheel. So to order, I just need to specify that information, right? Do I specify stainless spokes? Nipples?
Any specific recommendations? I want to spend the least that will meet the above criteria.
Thanks for the help.
