    School me on wheelsets

    Guys,
    I have a decent fork, frame and components but have never paid too much attention to my cheap Alexrims wheelset and have never felt the need to change it basically because I've ridden the same wheelset for years. I know they are low end and I am wondering what is the REAL advantage of the more expensive ones. What should I be looking for besides low weight? Do you really feel the difference???

    Stiffness, points of engagement in the rear hub, spoke count, ratchet design, rebuildable, sealed bearings,................ I guess your budget would be the biggest thing to look for in a new wheelset.
