Ask your nearest Bike shop proprietor to show you what you get when you spend more money..

Pre built wheels are a thing now, I build My Own.. so picked rim, hub & spokes separately..

in the shop, here, typical customer just wants to keep going, touring the coast, or off on single track in the woods..

there are wheels built at the distributor level, so they have a lower cost on their parts, and a production machine, saving labor..

usually adequate.. you can get them built with more expensive parts too,,

maintenance truing checking on a wheel you get in a shop, may be included, not so on an ebay buy.
