Just need some advice for cyclocross wheels. I'm currently using a set of wheels with Sun CR-18 rims with Michelin Pilot City tires for urban commuting; I'm planning on swapping to a set of proper CX tires for off-road events. My wheels feel bombproof as all hell on the streets, but given the punishment CX bikes seem to take from mud and crap, 36 spokes might not be the best way to go. I was wondering what other clincher options are available; I started by looking at road bike wheels, but realized that they were made mostly for speed and aerodynamics, not durability.
Or should I just bite the bullet and go tubular? If so, what's a good starter wheel?
