    nice to meet you.... actually your name is hateful and homophobic. not so nice to meet you after all...

    but on topic, the dp18s will do fine if they are within your budget.

    IRO has sold some nice cost-effective wheels in the past.

    I don't know if they still do.

    I'd recommend Mavic CXP22's from Bicycle Wheel Warehouse, about $140+shipping.

    Check out this thread comparing the Weinmans to the CXP22.

    Mavic CXP22 vs. Weinmann DP-18 aero

    Opinions seem to be cyclical around here. This is an old thread from when Weinmans were apparently out of favor.

    lol, the Weinmanns heavy and poorly constructed. Stick to Mavics.

    The IRO wheels are great for their price, unless you hit a curb real hard when you lose control going down hill, but i'd like to see any wheel survive that.

    I've got weinmanns, and love them.
    A guy from a LBS said they're "not worth riding". He doesn't know that i'm used to riding out-of-true budget '80s wheelsets, so the weinmanns are a revelation. It's all relative. if you're okay with not having the top stuff, they're an honest wheelset.

    Alex DA28s. A lot of messengers around here ride them because they are inexpensive and really strong and I've had a couple mechanics recommend them as well.

    Mavic Open Pros are supposed to be quite nice as well
