    Don't shoot me, another wheelset choice question

    Looking at a new wheelset for the fall. Current top choices are the Industry 9 Trail 24, Roval Control 29 Carbon, and the Light Bicycle carbon wheels. I believe they're all about the same weight and the same internal width. On paper the Light Bicycle wheels are hard to beat due to their low price. Do the I9's give you enough "extra" to justify their higher price?

    Buying the LB rims so you can use a star ratchet rear hub like the Rovals is a value oriented option. Supercomp spokes/brass nipples to avoid galvanic corrosion. 340, 350 240 rear hub and any of several front hubs with changeable endcaps.
