    I love them. I've built 4 sets, 2 each of 32 and 36 hole. They're a ridiculously stout rim. Make sure to use double butted spokes and you will have bombproof wheels.

    I'm just saying; this is pretty much exactly why the tricross and other "adventure road/ touring" bikes were created. You usually go slower on rough roads or at night, which makes the aero tuck less...

    for a commuter i'd stick with 9 speed. the chains and cassettes are cheaper compared to 10 speed stuff. and yes, shimano is still making 9 speed stuff. you can buy a brand new road bike with 9 speed.
