Got the hall pass for some new hoops = wife said "you have been working hard - you deserve it." How often does that happen?
For club rides, maybe a few random races or events. So, general purpose performance wheel. Don't want to spend too uch, also not quite there on carbon since the roads are up or down around here and I like predictable braking.
Thinking HED belgiums, 24 / 28. I weigh 170 at my high point, not generally a gear thrasher but think a little extra than 20/24 spokes might be nice. White industry hubs, Sapim spokes.
Question: would you go with Lasers or CX Rays? Front / rear makes a difference? Socal - do I care about brass nipples - maybe just rear?
Any input appreciated.
