i'm back on my fixed gear bike in a big way, and have really been enjoying the twilight rides now that it's practically dark by the time i get home from work. anyway, dented a rim last night on an unforgiving pothole. wheels were crap, need new.
what are some popular hubs to consider, it seems the overwhelming majority of fixed wheelsets are made with formula hubs. my current set is made with sealed bearing formula hubs, which are still rolling fine after about 4000 miles, i'm not opposed to using them again, but i want to know whats out there, what i'm seeing is:
formula (both loose ball and sealed bearings)
pre-built wheelsets - who's selling besides velomine and bicycle wheel warehouse, that i can just order already built, i'd like to have these things asap.
ideally, i guess i would like something durable, say 32 stainless spoked wheels, brass nipples, phil hubs and open pro rims, can this be done for 3 - 400 ?
wheels are mainly for light commuting and wet weather, winter/spring/fall riding. i'm fairly heavy on the miles, nothing too crazy, about 2k a year(ish)
