    Forte Titan

    Ok so I'm looking for this wheel, anyone know of a site that sells it other than performance
    Performance wants like 67 for the wheel plus 20$ to ship it plus a quick release will equal a little over 100$ which I'm not going to spend on a front wheel

    Forte is Performance's in-house brand. Good luck.

    Only for non-oversize items. Usually ranges from $11-35.

    It is the same wheel as the Neuvation http://www.neuvationcycling.com/product129.html
    which on clearance for $49. Although that one has a silver hub. The hub, rim and spokes are the same, but I think nuevation and performance build them separately. I have them on my commuter and so far they have held up. I really didn't know much about low-spoke wheels or bladed spokes when I bought them. I just got them because they were cheap. Lately I've been trying to break them, so I could upgrade, but they haven't budged.

    If you have a performance store near you, check if they have the wheels in stock there. Then just say you want to pay the online price, which they will honor.
