    so is it bad form to have two different makes of wheels on your bike? obviously, the same size but different brands/hubs etc?

    I have a heavy duty Mavic T520 on the back and a cheap Alex DA22 on the front. Since there's more weight on the back, it actually makes sense to put a heavier wheel on the back.
