So that's what I'm shopping around for, a new wheelset that doesn't run more than $150, has a 130 mm rear, and is reasonably strong. Nasbhar's vuelta corsa HD road wheel set fits the bill: I'm fine with getting it (there are 79 online reviews most of which are pretty favorable) but I'm curious what else is out there. They're not even that ugly as these things go. The wheels are for a cross bike and I intend to ride them hard but I'm not racing. I'm especially interested in wheelsets that BF members actually use and like.
