i need a new wheel(set)

hey guys, i have a trek bruiser 1, and my stock front wheel (26", 32mm) got stolen a month ago.

so i bought a random front wheel off craigslist, which works, but it looks stupid because the front rim/tire is narrower than the back.

so, i was thinking of just buying a better front wheel, that is rim brake compatible, that would kinda match with my back wheel a bit better.

any ideas on a decent build?

i was also looking at maybe just getting a wheelset.

that one is rim and disc compatible i believe, and it's only 200.

what should i do?

Just go to the LBS and have one built up.
Be far more durable than any machine built wheel.

You should get a new wheelset AND a new front fork for your Bruiser. Just so happens I've got some I'm selling.

Profile Racing Hubs laced to Mavic D321 rims, and your choice of a RS Psylo, Marz Z1 or Marz Shiver.

I'll make you a deal!!!!
