    Want to get new wheels

    So I am interested in getting new wheels and was wondering
    what other people had, and what suggestions were. I just ride
    around Seattle and need good all around wheels. Thanks for
    the information, oh and also price ranges would be nice to know.

    i'm a horrible one to ask... as i build my own wheels.

    i know deepv's are the "trend" but you can beat the hell out them in the 32h variety. and i'm a fan of phil wood hubs as well as profile racing's new fixed hubs (i'm a bmxer and profile def makes some good american made stuff)

    spokes... i use either dt competion 14/15/14 db. or sapim 14/17/15 tb

    my lacing patterns vary as i like to constantly try new things

    Make sure get the hubs adjusted or know how to adjust hubs, they eat bearings if you don't know how to adjust them. I know how to adjust them and mine were still finicky, i sold them and got Mavic/Formula wheelset which i like much better. Just keep that in mind.
