Thanks guys for your time. I still have the original wheels that came with my road bike so it really wouldn't be out of commission. So far all my races have been very soft with a lot of mud-grass, but I'm sure that will change someday. Although, I have had to true the Alex wheelset that came with my bike after every race so far. The tensions on those seemed to be all over the place.
The guy from Biowheels that finished up my build for me had said I could even use the race wheels for cyclocross, but I'm not so sure. What about a budget build, maybe 24/28-28/32? with Kinlin xr-270, xr-300 or even tb-25's with Dt Comps? Thanks, Jeremy
