good deal on touring wheels...

Ive been looking for some touring wheels as of late, ended up going with a set of these

I dont know what they have these wheels market as, but I think they are great touring wheels- 36 spoke, strong, reliable MTB hubs, dont know anything about the rims though but I assume they are fine. Plus each one is handbulit (mine were signed by the builder) in minnesota.

All in all, for 300 bucks retail (Im guessing if you look can be gotten cheaper) I consider these to be prety damn good touring wheels.

Handspun is QBP's house builder. I have only bought a fixed gear set from them, but I am pretty happy with their work. I think they offer some great wheels at reasonable prices. I found that having them build the wheel would be about the same price as it would for me to buy the parts and build them.

Being QBP's house builder, you can get these ordered from almost any LBS.
