i'm getting a new bike and have some options, the component package is relatively set due to cost but it's Ultegra except RD and Crank. those will be DA.

the wheels suggested are Ultegra/open pro. what are some other wheelsets that are roughly the same price/quality/better deal? i'm sure these will be fine but just thinking what my other options could be. i don't plan to race so the lightest is not needed but i don't want anchors either.

thanks.

Use DA hubs with OP rims, they're pretty much bomb-proof and much lighter than Ultegra/OP combination. DA hubs spin smoother as well.

On a side note, I also recommend changing the brake pads if you are using the Ultegra brake calipers. The Ultegra brake pads are crap.
