Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Never heard of them but Shimano makes a superb wheel in their 9000 series. Your search for something better will likely end in vain.

Sorry for getting off topic. Its a holiday today.

The DA9000's might be a bit more than I'd like to spend. I'm looking in the $500-600 range. For all around training/riding, I can get White Industries, a great rim and hand built quality at that price. Much more wheel than I am a rider.

Well, I didn't mean anything negative. I simply assess the wheel specs I am after, while maybe not quite as good as the DA's, will be more than enough and at a more reasonable price. No offense intended.

No, I mean it: tell him. You're absolutely right.
