How to find right wheel set for my road bike

Hi,

I am looking for a new wheel set for my CDale R4000. I have all Dura ace with a 9 speed cassette and 700x23 wheels now. My back rim needs replacing, so I figured I would upgrade both. I am not sure what I should be looking for in terms of size for a new wheel set. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

1000 choices in 700c road wheels. If your current hub is high quality, you could keep it & just replace the damaged rim.

I have dura ace hubs and would like to replace the rim and spokes. Any suggestions on rim and spokes?

Thanks

Do you want to rebuild both wheels ? Or just the damaged rear ? If just the rear, then maybe you want to find a rim that looks similar to the front.

If you rebuild both wheels you have lots of choices. One minor limiter is the number of spoke holes in your hubs.

Things to consider:

Carbon rims (needs special brake pads) or aluminum.
How heavy are you ?
Type of riding / intended use
terrain
budget (including rims, spoke, labor)

Then you may get better responses if you re-post in the "Road" forum.
