    Accident Today...wheel advice

    So, on my commute today I was taking a left hand turn and a fellow biker was trying to beat a yellow/red light through the intersection. I was dead in his path as he smashed into me.

    I was fairly fine, didn't even fall, as I wasn't moving fast at all, but he took the brunt of it.

    That was until I looked down and saw the condition of my front wheel. Trashed.

    Sooo I am in search of a replacement, or set that is good for a clyde who rides in the city and dabbles in cross on the weekends.

    My LBS has a pair of Velocity Dyads for $299 (installed)

    Thoughts/Suggestions?

    Go with the Dyads........hopefully 36H.
    Either way, nice rim, make a good wheel w/ attention from the LBS.
    And good price, as well.

    I've been very happy with Velocity Dyads.
