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...

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?
Emails are quicker....
