Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Alex Solo wheelset vs. Miche Xpress, others?

I've had my eye on the Miche Xpress wheelset and recently I've had several offers for the Alex Solo wheels that were stock on my San Jose for amounts that would almost cover the price of the Miche wheels. Wheels are one of the areas I know least about in terms of what factors make them "better," and I haven't been able to find much information about the Alex wheels online -- would this be a worthwhile swap for road biking? Are there other wheels in the +/- $250 price range I should look at? In case it's relevant: I'm a lightweight and don't do much to stress the wheels other than bunny hopping.
