Thanks for the replies,
John, I have been looking at ultegra/openpro wheels but I need 10 spd and those tend to hold their price on ebay, but I will hold off a bit longer (till payday
) to see if anything else comes up.
Terry, I was looking at Askiums too, but the newer models got a bit of bad press on the net so I was avoiding them, might take a fresh look. My LBS has a set of ksyriums hanging up in the shop, but I am just managing to avoid them just now... being skint helps
Pigeon, I have used either shimano or hope wheels on my mtbs, so I would always be happy with them on a road bike. But people do seem to take sides more in the road scene than mtb.
My deore hub lasted from 1988 till 2006 with 3 rim changes - 1 rim wore out, 1 broke, and 1 was a mavic 231cd which got swapped to a hope hub when the deore got too pitted. Still using it now.
