    Best deep rim wheelset (light/strong/price) ???

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    I bought a cheapo wheelset and just built up my beauty. Im having second thoughts as to the crappo rims/hubs - my bike deserves better.

    Anyone know of any deals or thoughts on a good value wheelset (model/brand) - trendy but high quality?

    Thanks!

    How deep?

    Seriously though, wheels/rims questions come up everyday...should check the first 2 pages before you make a thread.

    Nah, it's all good. What I meant is, you would probably get your answers right away in similar threads.

    But pretty much what yummygooey said.

    Word, I've been eyeballing those Chinese tubulars. Start working again Monday, so I might treat myself.

    What is it that you don't like about your current setup? The hubs don't spin freely? The rims can not be trued properly? You just want something with more "bling"?

    mastered two bands this week that sounded like screaming trees doing nirvana covers while high on hash.
    TWO SEPARATE BANDS IN ONE WEEK WITH THE SAME LAME SOUND?

    hipsters, WHY!?
