Stiff and Smooth?

36 hole Dura Ace Hubs with spokes tied & soldered to Mavic Open Pro Rims.

That will do it.

Under $1,000?

We all know that the more wheels cost, the better they are: stiffer, smoother, faster, lighter. ;-)

So coming in a little less than $1,000, you can get a Topolino Revelation C19 or Fulcrum Racing 1 or Campagnolo Eurus or Shimano 7801 SL Clincher wheelset.

Also the best handbuilt wheels anywhere. And you can take the train out to Bayport, LI, to meet the builder!

Also try a Mike Garcia Speedcific wheel. A set will cost you around 600-800 bucks and they get rave reviews.

Zipps on eBay

I have had very good luck buying Zipps on eBay. You can usually grab a 2004 or 2005 used set of 303's for around $800 or so plus around $30 for shipping. Now those are light, stiff, smooth and fast! Did I mention that they are fast?
