    What's a decent wheelset for commuting around $250?

    I have a "commuting" wheelset for my 26r and now am looking for a 29r wheelset for my Airborne Goblin XO that I will use ONLY on the streets, paved trails, etc. Any suggestions for a wheelset around $250?

    I saw these awhile ago and thought they would be a good choice for commuting depending on what your hub mounting points are like. Shimano RX05 Wheelset

    If you are standard 9mm axle and qr then these would be a good choice. Might have to pick up shimano disc rotors or an adapter but these'd be fine for commuting needs. Put some 700x35c tires on and you are rollin'.
