I’ve been waiting for today’s question. For me, choosing wheels is as difficult as choosing a frame set. I look at smaller details like cassette ratio, bar tape, & saddle and think that even if I don’t like the first choice, I can live with it until I can wear it out or replace it. Wheels on the other hand have gotten to be a very large commitment, at least in dollars. In some cases, they are more expensive than the frames themselves. What wheels will go with new bicycle build?
We could lead this and put a bunch of requirements or criteria. In the end, we’d only get the answer we are looking for. Instead, the only requirements are that we don’t want to spend a couple grand on wheels and we don’t want to work on them all the time.
So…What wheels? Post your suggestion in comments. I know what I want, but I’ll wait until the end and if there is a tie I’ll use my vote as the swing vote.
EDIT: Saddle choice is Fizik Aliante. Fizik garnered 34.5% of allowable votes.

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
