Buying New Wheels

I'm looking for some advice for new wheels. I'm riding a converted Specialized Hardrock, with a no-name road fork. My plan is to upgrade, or even buy a new frame over the winter, so I'd like to keep the cost down on new wheels.

Any recommendations would be welcome.

Cheers,

Paris

Get a wheelset built around Formula hubs. There are some places you can get deals on them, IRO is one.

I dunno what other peoples thoughts are, but I found these wheels on ebay and they seemed like a good deal. I think I'll order some today or tomorrow.

what do the rest of you think of those wheels?

and in case the link doesn't work, this is the url: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1
