Having said that...

I'm not sure that somebody's discussion about what may or may not make some budget wheelsets worth more or less than others tells you anything unless you tell him, or us, what you need besides "best for the money"...

I looked back in this thread, and maybe I missed it - but I didn't see any mention whether you need, or want, or can fit - wide or narrow rims and rubber on whatever it is you are are doing? Or whether you want lighter and racier, or sturdier wheels?

Have fun - good luck...
My dropouts measure 126mm, so it looks like velomine can take care of that for me. I think I'm gonna go for a classic look, so going with silver wheels and standard tires. Shouldn't bee too much fitment issue unless I'm missing something.
