...that I posted early last week. I was pondering whether at a healthy 190 lbs. I could get away with a wheelset built up with a set of 28 spoke Velocity Aerohead rims and Ultegra hubs. Well... I decided to build up a set using Mavic Open Pros (32 hole) and Ultegra hubs. The parts are on sale at Nashbar (the rear hub was under $30). This should yield a nice strong, relatively light wheelset for about $270 (with shipping). Not bad.
