I want a 2nd set of wheels... advice?
I'm shopping around and pricing a 2nd set of wheels for my cross bike. Pit wheels in-season and shod with 25-28c road/touring tires for off-season use.
My bike came with Bontrager Select wheels and they worked really well for me-- stayed true through a season of cross and short-track MTB races and a couple of XC events.
I'd like to get another set of Bonty Selects so I won't have to think about size issues (width of rim, height of rim, etc). Just slot and go.
I've looked at Bonty Race wheels on-line but can't find any dimensional specs. They apparently run cartridge bearings vs. the loose cup and cone of the Selects. (If I got something like this, my Selects would be the pit wheels)
Anyway-- anyone out there have any advice? What I should look for, etc?
