I need a new wheel!

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I need a new wheel!

This has been so frustrating. So earlier in the year I bought a wheelset from my friend. DT Swiss 350 hubs laced to Mavic open pros. Lightweight and durable enough for me. 32 spokes front and rear. One day I was riding in traffic and I was paying more attention to the cars behind me than what was in front of me. I looked in ahead and there was a curb that I wasnít prepared for. I hopped up last second and my rear wheel clipped it. The rim was cracked. Iíve been looking for a wheel ever since. I donít want another Narrow rim/wheel and my rear hub is still good. Iím not opposed to buying a rear wheel. Should I buy an H Plus Son Archetype and spokes and have it built? Pretty much all the wheels I find that are in my budget are tubeless. I run clinchers. Help!

1- just use the tubeless rim and run a tube. The police won't give you a citation if they find out.
2- sure use an Archetype rim. I have that rum for a couple of wheelsets- it is about as neutral as it gets, which is great.

Have a good shop build a new wheel with your old hub. They can get a new rim and you will want them to use new spokes. The Archetype is fine, as is the H+Son Hydra. (The latter is tubeless-ready, but works fine with a tube and clincher tire.)

I have a Mavic Open Pro 32 that I used on a trainer that I have no use for any longer. It is laced to an Ultegra hub. Ping me if you are interested, just cover shipping an it is yours. It is in perfect condition, has never seen the actual road.

Edit: I just notice you are in S.Fla, I am in Jacksonville, so the shipping should not be too much. Also, if you just want the rim, I can take the hub off and just send you the rim.
