Any recommendations for a good commuting wheelset?
I've been riding on some Shimano bottom of the line cheapies, after about 2000 miles the rear wheel broke a spoke about 1/4 mile from home. I should have gotten off and walked, but I just biked home... a few rides later, having replaced that spoke, another one broke. This time I got off the bike as fast as I could, but the rim still seems bent just enough that it's impossible to true.
I don't need anything super lightweight, I'd much rather get something reliable that will hold up to my 200lbs + hauling a Burley trailer with a kid, and I just simply don't have to think too much about other than occasionally check that the spokes are still tensioned. Ideally not too expensive, but I am willing to pay for durability. 8 speed shimano gearing.
