i have a Trek 1000 and want to upgrade my wheel set. I want a strong wheelset that can cope with th great Irish potholes as I live in Ireland. They must also be compatible with 8 speed S-ram. I quite like the Shimano 105 6500 as they are in my price range, but having fewer spokes will they be strong enough. My spokes on my current wheels have snapped twice in as many months. Anyone got any good suggestions or are the wheels i've chosen suitable?
May the wind always be at your rear!
