And Winter wheel ? why not an IGH, it will have less exposed to get crudded up in salty slush .
and shift when slowly slogging..
yea the CR18 rim suggested is fine .. Velocity V types may shed snow off the center
more than one thats squared off . Ala, Peaked Vs Flat Roof.
I am willing to spend up to $100 on the new wheel.
ah there is your limiting factor you cant get perfect for that price..
that being said there are some decent low end hubs of the cassette type
with well fitting rubber boots over the bearings .. with a modest type rim
can be the CR 18 .. machine built and hand checked at the shop
you want it shipped from Oregon? I have contacts at the LBS..
you might find something similar locally ..
