I am looking to get a new, cheap set of road wheels on a limited budget. A Nashbar deal has
Mavic X221 / Shimano Deore Wheel Set for 70$. Does anyone have any info on these wheels. I am concerned about wheel strength as I weigh 185lbs. I usually put about 100-150 miles on my bike a week. Thanks for any info.

"There are some reviews of these rims at MTBReview.com. Of course, keep in mind that these MTBers are very hard on their equipment!"

Road wheels?

"I think those are 26"" MTB wheels. What kind of bike do you ride?

Nashbar has a lot of other wheels on sale cheap. The build quality of any wheel is more important than the components used. If the Nashbar wheels are machine built, they probably will need additional tensioning and stress relieving.
