I put VBrakes on my Jake with a cable reducer. Works great! Next new wheels?

yea, new wheels next. The deore hubs have been great, never a problem, and still spin smooth. But the braking surface on the rear wheel is shot. I'm just looking for something reliable around $200. Hopefully a pair of 105/open pro's.
When I get the itch to upgrae again I'm thinking of going with the bling - thomson stem and seatpost.
