    The wheel is the thing your tire goes on, you don't need a 40 spoke wheel. You should have a 32mm+ tire.

    manan91, this looks good. If you're semi-fit and don't carry a huge load it should get you anywhere. My suggestion would be a pair of medium sized panniers and a small/medium sized duffle or...
