I recently picked up a Masi Uno and I really, really love the bike, but the wheels that are on it (while nice) aren't really my style. They're Maddux track wheels from a Bianchi Pista Sei Giorni and they run fine, but I'd really like something a little more "classic" in design. I really like the styling of the bike and I think a matte finish or satin silver wheel would look really nice. The Maddux wheels are kind of a deep track style which look a little out of place on my Masi, in my opinion.
Could you guys recommend a wheelset for me? Maybe something in the $225 or under range? I don't think I can afford a custom-built wheel. If it helps, I'm running 700x25 Gatorskins (the streets here suck) and I'd like to keep rolling those for now as they're brand new. I'm using a front brake only so a non-machined rear would be okay if it comes in a set. The purists will flame me, but I run freewheel a bit so I'd want a flip-flop hub so I can be lazy when I'm riding to the farmer's market with my wife or whatever.
I've seen the Vuelta stuff from Bike Island. I actually had a set of Gold Deep V Vuelta's on a Lime Green Royce Union that I converted a loooooong time ago (sounds ugly and hipsterish doesn't it? ) and they seemed to be decent wheels for the money, but they were a $120 eBay find and I wasn't sure if there was something better out there for my money in a more traditional profile.
Thanks in advance for any help or considerations.
