I'm a 300lbs rider with a stock 2010 CAAD8 8C. After a few hundred miles, I'm starting to break spokes on my rear tire every trip. I think it's time for a new wheelset.
My local bike shop suggests the Ksyrium Equipe S for $440. They also recommended an $800 wheelset; while great I'm sure, for that price I might consider getting a bike w/ better overall components.
I not sure if the Ksyriums are a good choice, or should I go with something custom from http://www.prowheelbuilder.com or similar? Thoughts?
My initial budget was $300, but perhaps that was unreasonable. I certainly want to stay under $500.
