I've got a 2009 Redline Conquest Pro that I bought on a fluke and I absolutely love. I bought it used a couple of years ago and have put around 1500 miles on it.
When I'm on the CX, I typically do a mix of logging roads, rail to trail, light singletrack, and pavement. Rides are typically around 20 to 30 miles with around 1000 to 2500 ft of climbing.
I also have the potential (depending on weather and motivation) to do up to two rides a week with a couple of my roadie friends that are entirely on pavement. The rides are around 20 miles with 1000 feet of climbing with an average speed of 16mph. I'm pushing a lot of rubber with the CX bike and this brings me to my question.
I'd like to get a second wheelset that I can keep slicks on. I'd use this wheelset on my road rides and also use the rear wheel on a trainer.
I'm 200 pounds. My CX currently has a set of Ritchey DS wheels. They have been trouble free. No complaints.
I'd appreciate suggestions for pre-built CX wheelsets. Price would be $400 max.
I don't want to go with just a set of road wheels as I'm happy with the gains just from running slicks and I'd like to be able to use the second wheelset as a backup for CX rides.
Any suggestions appreciated.
