Any reccomendations? I had an ultegra/Sun ME14A wheelset, but after pulling 4 spokes out of thier nipples last ride, I am going to get a new set. Any reccomendations for premade wheelsets or should I rebuild the ultegras?

My suggestion would be to rebuild on the Ultegra hubs. Sun makes some the best rims for mountain bikes. I love the Rhyno Lite. I have not had the same luck with their road offerings. I would consider rebuilding them with maybe a Mavic Open Pro, or CPX33. I think a handbuilt wheel with these would come close to a boutique wheel in weight but would be more durable.

Good Luck!!!
