Okay guys, I have some questions about my bike's wheels.
So it's been at least 300 miles put on to my windsor hour since I first got it and my wheel set seems to be fine still. I go up and down curbs (but when i can avoid it i always do), I've hit some nasty pot holes but I've only had a few minor falls (most of which were tripping getting out of the clips, lol).
A guy I met at a meet up said that he had problems with his windsor hour's wheel set pretty quickly into it's use. He doesn't trick on them though. What's the best way for me to tell if my wheels are still true without having a bike shop look at them? Also, with the mileage that I've put on my bike, should I have had a problem with them by now? If you guys have bought a windsor hour and had wheel problems, tell me what went wrong so I can know what to expect and how to avoid them.
Second question is, for those of you who started off riding on some crummy wheels, about how many miles did you ride before they came un-true?
And the last question which ties into that is I've been looking at new wheels sets. I know everyone is gonna say not to buy a crappy wheel set, get a velocity rim, etc. But if I decide to ignore the warnings and buy a retrospec deep-v wheel set from sgvbicycles.com for $120 (no shipping costs), will I regret being cheap? I mean right now I feel like my wheel set now is already crap, so these retrospec ones must be at least a little better right? I would be selling my old set for $50 bucks to a friend of mine so the price would technically be $70 with a trade-in. Worth it?
