I need to get a new wheelset. I don't really do much loaded touring, but I want a functional, reliable/durable wheelset for my cyclocross bike I use as a general purpose rig (commuting, shopping, light touring, recreation). Again, function is a priority or light-weight, as long as they aren't ridiculously heavy.
I'm inclined to go with 36-spokes, probably Deore LX hubs. My budget is around $200-300. I'm looking for something on-line or mail-order since you can save so much money. Locally, I decent handbuilt wheelset with 36-spoke Deore LX hubs and good rims will run at least $300+, but on-line I know there are better deals. All suggestions are appreciated.
