    Looking for new Wheelset for my AWOL.

    Hey Folks -

    One of the newer additions to my rides is a Spec AWOL. I like it, it's fairly hefty - ( coming from a Guercotti XC @ 20 yrs old )
    - I like it - soaks up more road than the 'cotti - but I find the stock wheels pretty sluggish. Suggestions in the $500 range.

    Like the bike a lot - nice for my 12 mile commute, just need a little bit more lightness to the jump, etc...

    thanks,

    Jude

    I swapped tires on mine and noticed a difference. I used the stock 29x1.95s that came on my Stumpjumper on the AWOL. The tires feel lighter and the bike "seems" to accelerate quicker. Might be rode colored glasses?
