    When I think about all the times my GPS has stopped working or failed to pick signals from the sensors because of power lines or whatever, I would not really want to give up shifting that often.

    A well built 36 hole rim with standard double butted spokes will serve you well. One of the newer 23 or 24mm rims might be marginally stronger than a skinny little 19 or 20mm hoop also.

    If you want maximum 7,8,9,10 compatibility make sure to get a 7850 rear hub. They went to a Ti cassette body and back to a normal spline.
