I had a bike rack drop down while traveling a mountain road last week and the Alex DC19 rims were destroyed on my new Jamis Endura road bike. Without spending an arm and a leg for rims I'm wondering what recommendations people could give me so far as a comparable lightweight rim set? The frame was not damaged and I'm willing to upgrade to a set that might cost between $200-400 and a spoked set, something with 36 spokes and that will accept the Shimano 10 speed cassette. I ride basically for fitness, am not doing any races or competitive riding, but strictly to stay in shape and primarily on road surfaces. It's a bit awkward deciding on new rims with so many variables out there and so many distributors. I weigh around 230 lbs and would like to keep the bike light, yet ride on some comfortable, lightweight and dependable rims.
Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
