    Looking for new Wheels

    So as some of you may have seen, I can't use my new fork with my wheels. I had wanted to upgrade my wheels anyways and I thought now would be a better time than ever. I am really lost on what good wheels are. I know building your own is the best way to go but I don't have the money to invest into really nice wheels. So I'm wondering what you guys would recommend for around 500 dollars (cheaper the better). I want something that has good price to performance ratio. In case you don't know, I'm riding a 2006 kona stuff. http://www.konaworld.com/bikes/2006/stuff.htm

    How about $250 for a really nice wheelset? 1/2 of your allotted budget isn't bad.
    The Halo Combats would work very well on that Kona.

    Check out the Azonic Outlaws, Transition Revolution, Performance Loco wheelset. All three of these use the same rim.

    I would get the Azonic because the rear hub can convert to a 12mm through axle. You never know, eventually that might come in handy.
