OK, I saved my pennies and hounded my slacker clients, and now I have a budget to work with for a new set of wheels.
I have $200 to spend. I am hoping to get a set that is an improvement over the basic Suzue-basic/MA3 setup. (Right now I have that on the rear, and a random front, which will move to a new build for my partner.)
I have searched this forum and looked around a lot, and it seems to me that the best deal I can get is a set of IRO's basic $184 wheels--IRO hubs on Velocity Aero Heads.
Oh, one catch: I want a fixed/fixed rear hub. I think I can get that on the IRO set but am gonna confirm first.
so, question 1: Is the IRO the best deal, or is there some other choice I should be aware of?
question 2: if I built 'em myself, could I do a significantly better wheelset for around the same price?
thanks a lot
