rock! Ok so I'm building up a wheelset for my college bike. I'm looking for some recommendations. Surly hub or Suzue basic? I've heard the basics suck, but I've also heard of people having no problems whatsoever with them. And I'm sort suspicious of Surly products for well... absolutely no reason at all. Low flange duraces and high flange campys are also available, but I feel that they may be a bit overpriced and attract theives. What sort of rims? I can get some velocities, suns, alex or mavic (or those are the ones I'm leaning towards), the suns and alexs are about $5 cheaper than the velocities per rim (i'm getting them at wholesale prices). Advice about rims other than "get deep V's, they rock" would be hella welcome. Also, spokes and nipples, suggestions? I was utterly perplexed by the vast variety of spokes and nipples available.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for not searching, as i'm sure that will pop up.
I'll be riding urban environments and possible snow (think cleveland but more farms) with the possibility of shipping them over to SF during the summer.
